My Review
I watched this movie this weekend and loved it. I know people like the girl in this movie; people whose life is a mess. She is so typical of many of the clients I serve in my job; people who have made a lot of mistakes and have very little future but muddle through life and are doing the best they can given their circumstances.

If you are feeling a little depressed don't watch this movie. This movie is so sad. It will make a grown man choke back a tear. It will make you get introspective. About the time it gets so sad you think you can't stand it, something funny will happen that relieves the tension and makes you laugh out loud. A great movie!

If you have Comcast it is now showing as a free movie.

  1. Ooh, I don't know if that's one I'd like to see -- and I'm not depressed -- but I OUGHT to be. We all ought to be in this economy.
