| One of the best movies I've ever seen
It's 2/10/19 and I can't believe I never saw this movie until today. I love Kathy Bates as an actress but this character as Trotter is expressed as the epitome of love and giving in an unselfish way, I want to wrap her in a box and take her home with me. Bravo to Ms. Bate's ability as an actress to express the debth of the character. This movie grabs at your heartstrings and keeps you wrapped up so tight until all the love in the world explodes when the bow is untied. I cried like a baby and felt that this is what life is all about, unselfish love. Great movie, great script, great acting and just a perfect movie.
