My mother purchased this movie for my children to watch when they visited her and she quickly fell in love with it herself. However while working on their VCR my father used this tape as a "test" and completely ruined it. She was crushed. Although several years had passed she still occasionally mentioned the loss of her beloved movie. When she visited recently I was pleased to present her with a copy of the movie on DVD. She was thrilled. We watched it right away and then she carefully packed it away in her suitcase so as not to forget it when she returned home. The heart warming story of a young woman who achieves her dreams despite the life changing events she encounters is something you can watch again and again. I know my mother will!
