Very Good movie with a lot of value
6 March 2001 | by FlyingMonkeyJaySee all my reviews

This was a very good film starring Elizabeth Shue. It's really to bad the film wasn't longer because I would have liked to have seen more of Amy and Isabelle's troubles and life. I really hope they release this on video so other people can see it, very powerful that really touched home.
