| One of those lengthy films that you're sorry to see end.
This is a fabulous story depicting the lives of several people during one of the most interesting times in America. The star, Bess, is a strong woman that many other women can relate to as she struggles through the many challenges that life (& death) subject us to. She is not shown to be faultless, but rather normal, as people are. You get angry with her, love her, and cry with her, as well as the other characters. The sets, costumes, and acting are superb. We need more film made in this manner. I don't know how I missed it the when it was released in 1995 and just caught it on Lifetime in December of 2005. My mission will now be to try to find it on DVD.
