| Forgotten Movie Well Worth Watching
What a moving movie. I watched this as a Huge fan of Patti Labelle. What I got to my pleasant surprise was a well written moving made for TV movie. Alfre Woodard was the central figure of the movie. She was stunning and her portrayal was true to life and why she didn't get more recognition for her role in this movie stuns me. She accurately portrays real life events in a way that could not have been done better. I cried at the end when she is informed that Ritter's character was dead. Patti Labelle makes cameo's and I felt could have been a more pivotal role none the less I was glad to see her in this movie. It is one that I would recommend to everyone as there is something for everyone in this movie. I would say that this is a gem that was neglected and forgotten great movie. Have the tissues ready you will need them !!! Again Alfre Woodard was well underrated performance, John Ritter may have had the star power but without her the movie would be nothing. She caries it threw from beginning to end.
