Not Very Original
16 May 2003 | by chadkefferSee all my reviews

This is a film with a troubled woman who resolves her problem by listening to other women talk about their past (via flashbacks). Very similar to "Fried Green Tomatoes" and "How to Make an American Quilt" If you liked those movies then you'll probably like this one. It was a decent movie, but not at all original in concept.
