A gem of a film
9 August 2003 | by KimberlyjeanaSee all my reviews

I am so glad I caught this in Black Starz this weekend. A beautiful story about the things that are really important in life. And it asks the ? Is what you really want - what you really want? Sometimes you can back into what you were born to do.

If you get a chance see this movie.
