| Another man making a film about a weak woman and calling it strong!
I watched this film, with a friend, at the Dallas International Film Festival premiere. I read the outline of the story and it seemed to be something I would like. The short of it was I didn't care for it at all.

The film itself was good the picture and sound. The music was a bit over done like a Hallmark movie. The actors were good except a couple, and I always hate to hear bad Texas accents. But all of that stuff was okay. There is some animation that doesn't seem to fit, but it is interesting to watch. There is, however, a bunch of stuff that just doesn't add up or make sense.

The part that really didn't work for me was the story, and or I guess I should say the script. After the film was over people where hoop'n and yelp'n about how deep and how it was such a love story. Just like on reviews I have read, but I see two common differences between them and me. First, they are 20-30 something men, and second they aren't in the health care profession.

I am not a movie professional, but I love movies and I am the middle American that watches them. So I guess I am an expert to some degree, at least I am an expert on what I like. The movie is irresponsible about the medical implications, and the character is just sort of stupid and does nothing to show the empowerment of woman. Of course, written by a male. And a young one at that, it comes through in the story being a yawn and a who cares.

Being a mother of 4 and a nurse (who has experience with both medical marijuana and the condition) the film is just not good. It is like it is trying to fabricate emotion, and it just doesn't get it. Like an artsy director doing a Lifetime movie. You can't fake heart. People were going on an on about unconditional love and how powerful, I saw nothing like that. I saw a stupid lazy little girl with a kid that she had no business taking care of. It must be a generational thing of if I say it enough it will be true, rather than being smart enough to actually do something.

Sorry if this seems so negative, but as a mother it really makes me sick. Unconditional love is working double shifts and getting your life together. It annoyed me so greatly I had to look at what people were saying and after reading other reviews (which seem like they are biased and probably friend of the director) I felt I should give some of the other side's view.
