KOXA,the radio station Harriet gets a job at, is 107.2 FM. In the U.S., FM-radio stations broadcast on odd frequencies. It would be either 107.1 or 107.3, not 107.2. See more »
SUCH a wonderful movie, it's pretty inspiring and you're definitely going to cry (some tears will be happy). Couldn't picture 3 more perfect people to represent the leading ladies.
It's hard to explain to other people why they should watch a movie and feel the things that you feel while watching it. But I kind of think that's a lesson from this movie. Feel however you want, do what you want, but "make it matter".
