*****Powerful, Moving, thorougly entertaining*****
I went to see this film with no knowledge of the book or it's author, I was so impressed with the powerful performances and moving scenes. The emotions are raw and you feel bruised by the intensity,Your left with your heart wounded and you can't help being touched right to your core...You laugh and cry with the characters you become attached to in the story, and they stay with you like family and friends in your heart...The film deserved it Oscar nomination, you must see especially with all the women you know...it brings all us sisters together no matter who you are! (and even some of the brothers too!)
From the other review if the book is better I can't wait to read it...
