This is what God meant when he invented TV. Go get this and watch it and get ready for it to change your life. There's so little really out there. So few films really touch us, make us think, make us feel. I remember seeing this the first time, some countless viewings ago. Some people love music and play their favorite song over and over, some people love great cinema, and watch their favorite film over and over. Guilty as charged. This gem is my comfort blanket. I was going through some pretty hard times and this movie got me through. Its positive message and uplifting performances by some of the greatest actors of our time is what kept me going when I thought I wasn't going to make it. Now I watch this with my own kids. To let them see how wonderful a good movie can really be. That Molly can really tug at your heart strings. I get so worried every time, but every time it ends up ok. I love this movie so much. I only wish my own childhoods demons could have resolved as easily as Mollys did. CASSANDRA COBLENTZ portrays Molly with a sort angelic presence. She is a genius. I don't know where she is, or why she never went on to do other work, but I'll always love her for this. If you have kids, or if you just love a good time in front of the tube, go find this movie somewhere, though I don't think it's for sale. But it should be. If it ever comes out on D.V.D., I'm going to buy a copy for all of my friends and loved ones. In summation, TWO THUMBS UP!
