A Special Place In My Heart
15 December 2019 | by jdoupeSee all my reviews

I randomly found this film on the TV one day when I was a kid. I enjoyed Jessica Steen's acting greatly as she fought for her child to live a "normal" life. I also enjoyed the story of the movie. I wouldn't recommend this movie to just anyone, you have to be prepared for low expectations of the film. It is a lower budget movie. But if your seeking a film about a mother and her love for her children I would watch it. Unfortunately I can't seem to find this movie anywhere.
