User Reviews

I liked it & James Woods was great!
23 August 2004 | by blackwingedhorseSee all my reviews

I liked that the movie was kept real. In other words it wasn't turned Hollywood. Some of those watching with me said it was boring in parts. I didn't think so. I said, "We are watching her life. Is your life exciting 24/7? No, it isn't." Then they changed their minds because they viewed the movie differently than say an action flick. I thought this was one of James Woods best performances. We all found it sad that it was a piece in a smaller film that most won't get to see. He did an excellent job of playing someone with Parkinson's. In the middle of the movie I went online to see if it mentioned anywhere his actually having Parkinson's because I thought he was that good. That's the difference between a good actor and a great actor.
