Jellybeans are cool.
20 February 2000 | by hornymonkeySee all my reviews

I love this movie. It is very dear to my heart, because she is just like my sister, Marni. My parents hospitalized her for three years, but they couldn't afford it so they brought her back home. And my parents have cried every day since.
