Superbly acted, touched the core of people's circumstances.
1 April 2001 | by floblevSee all my reviews

The title, Children of My Heart, says it all. The story unfolds within the context of love. I liked the story and the way it brings out how people react to creative, loving ideas, and how they appreciate acknowledgment. I compare this movie to Good Will Hunting in the sense of life-changing kindnesses.
