    This was an excellent movie! It is not for people who crave action. IMO the explicit sex scenes were unnecessary.

    Maybe you hAD TO HAVE BEEN THERE TO Appreciate this movie. As the mother of an adopted daughter who today herself is a mother, the weaving ofg this story struck every possible real-life challenge and reward for all parties in the adoption triad: mother, child and adoptive parents. Each role was sensitively played and several moments were searing.
