I love this movie!
12 April 2002 | by jjyoungSee all my reviews

I saw this movie as a kid and it was one of the most moving pieces of filmmaking I have ever seen. Mildred Dunnock gives an amazing performance as the homeless woman and it always sends me to tears. I wish this movie were available on DVD or video.
