Review: Can I just say hashtag tearjerker! Watching this movie made me inspired, angry, sad, and hopeful all at once. It is an older film so the quality is no that great and there are some weird scenes in the beginning that seemed to be in fast forward when they didn’t seem like they were supposed to be. But the message of this movie is not lost in all the distraction, do give up hope and don’t except no for an answer. I recommend this movie for most people. It is appropriate for all age groups and is a heart warming drama.
