Although I usually find book adapted movies to be an insult to the book itself, I found this movie to be an exception. Michelle Pfeifer and Alison Lohman could have never done any better than this. This is a true movie, and I am amazed at the extraordinary research that made this so true to life. With so many movies copying previous ones it is a great change of scenes. There has never before been a movie depicting the life of a foster child nor the deep and complex relationship between a mother and child. You have to see it to believe it.

My biological mother made me watch this movie with her shortly after she got out of prison. She didn't go to prison for the same thing but the movie was closely related to how my life went after she was taken. I read the book a few months ago and fell in love with it and the movie all over. I am suggesting you read the book. Its more detailed and a lot more emotional. I am in college and taking a Psychology class and our teach has assigned us to bring in one movie each of human behavior and growth. This is the movie I chose. I recommend this movie to anyone and everyone.

I saw this movie when I was having a really hard time getting a long with my mother. This movie has a special place in my heart and always will. I recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys an emotional and intellectual roller coaster.

This movie simply make Alison Lohmam into the movies. I haven't see her in other movies that top this one though. I enjoy seeing her art work as her salvation and her sweet tender romance unfold inmidst of the mother and foster home situation. I would high recommend the book the writing is so beautiful.

I have seen the movie and just finished reading the book. I urge you to read the book and then watch the movie again. The book is much more detailed, of course, but they did a wonderful job converting the book into the movie. A story that seems true to many foster children. Great writing and eloquent use of words. A must see and must read!

It was hard to watch at times but was still a good movie. Good performances though.

Alison Lohman is brilliant in this film, so is Ms. Pfeifer. The harsh reality, which is life itself, that Lohman's character had to go through is sheer pain and pure love at the same time... the movie painted a surreal way of perception.. of being loved, of life and it's ironies. indeed , if we can only create our own perfect world in a suitcase then life would be managable. a must see.
