This movie by far has to be my favorite. I've seen it at least 5 times now and it still does not cease to pull me in and get me teary eyed. The first time I saw this I left the theatre nearly traumatized by the movie. It had tears rolling down my face. The story is slow in the beginning but as it unfolds you cannot help but be indulged in it. I think the race issue may have been a bit overplayed but realistically it is in real life... isn't it? This is a Must See!
