A different movie, exploring one's self
Debra Chong | San Francisco, CA United States | 04/06/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)
"This is a movie that should only be viewed if you are ready to experience sadness in the examination of parental and personal relationships --- none of the relationships here are happy, and each has its secrets and disconnections. It expresses the sadness of a mother --- who has given up her daughter, acknowleging that she has missed many of the important life events of her daughter ---. I am an adoptee and recently united with my birth family who found me, in ways I could relate to the characters, but in other ways, I could not. However, it is well-worth watching, if you are willing to watch a drama that has a dark side."
Another death in middle age movie?
R. Bagula | Lakeside, Ca United States | 01/13/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)
"Full of middle age flashbacks in an intergenerational interaction of a Latin Christian Scientist, her 60's Liberal daughter and the adopted child searching for her roots.
Her roots are dying of cancer and was radio's " Sleepy Time Gal" disc-jocky.
I really didn't like the movie, but the acting is pretty good, the story very humane."
