User Reviews

 
Scenes are almost shockingly unbearable to watch when dealing with a topic never seen on film before.
23 February 2006 | by izay142See all my reviews

This movie is extremely hard to watch, but that is because the characters are so real that you begin to feel their pain. It is a really good movie and an important movie. Should be in more theaters. There are a lot of good sub-plots. The whole family in the film is fascinating to watch. Also look for the boyfriend of the lead actress's friend in the movie. He is also on the show Twins with Melanie Griffith. Only an independent film would be able to make this movie. Hollywood would never touch this subject even though they could do A Million Dollar Baby. This could be the most controversial film I've ever seen.
