I agree with most of the other comments regarding this movie. I had not watched this movie for quit a few years then checked it out at the library. This is an oldie but a goody.

One of Cher's best roles. I really enjoyed it and got emotionally involved in the story. I highly recommend it.

A great movie based on a true story. It teaches the lesson that you can't judge a book by it's cover.
The chemistry between the major actors is just colossal.

It's crazy that this film did not win more awards, and the lack of nominations are unbelievable. I would consider this to be Cher's finest performance. The mother/son chemistry between Cher and Eric Stoltz is emotional and believable. Throw in the fine supporting cast, highlighted by Sam Elliott and Laura Dern, and this should have easily been an award winner. I've seen it several times, and it never gets old. Have a tissue on hand, and enjoy the Bob Seger soundtrack.

Not only is she an amazing singer but she's also an extremely talented actress.
