Visitor Comments

Marlise Wessels: Wonderful, makes you think!

Rulyndi Hendricks: Very good.

Carin Pretorius: Liked it, but not one of the best.

Kirsty Melmed: It makes me appreciate my mom.

Patricia Cunningham: Wish it would make some people wake up pay more attention to those precious ones we call children!

Renier Swanepoel: Well you never know what life will give...but keep believing.

Robert Haynes: Fair human drama. The always watchable Michelle Pfeiffer make this intimate film worthwhile. The kids are all awful though and bring down the potential impact the film had.

Gert Booysen: Very good drama.
