This movie came out the year I graduated High School (1998) and when I saw it back then I thought it was an ok movie with some sad parts. This afternoon on this rainy Sunday afternoon I found it on tv. As Izzy and Andrew napped and Jacob played at a friends house, I decided to get off my feet for a bit, be lazy and watch it. WHOA- I think I cried for half of the movie and I wasn't expecting that.
I think my perspective on life and everything else for that matter changed when I had kids. I think it happens to most women. A movie that I thought was just ok 10 years ago, had pulled out streaming tears. I can't imagine facing some of the issues that this mother faced. If you haven't seen it, you have to.
Check out the clip- it just about put me in a tizzy of hyperventilating.
