| I would like to find this movie. It was wonderful!!!
I have also been looking for this movie all these years. I loaned it to a friend and she lost it. I would very much like to know where I can get a copy. I do not care if it is used either. Please respond ASAP. I enjoyed this movie so much and would love for my son to see it. Any help would be appreciated. Linda Lavin was wonderful in this movie. She had a daunting experience ahead of her. She must have felt very lonely and forgotten, yet she and her children overcame and endured. It was funny, heartwarming, sad, scary and very intense. It had all the emotions and drama anyone could hope for. If anyone has a copy I would love to get this movie. Thanks, Vickie
