Excellent Love Story & view of Hollywood
7 January 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Watching this and seeing the true Love between Debbie & her children is heartwarming. It also gives you a slight insight into the old and new Hollywood lifestyle. Not such an easy life.

After seeing how much Carrie cared for her Mom, and worried about her declining health, I wonder if Carrie is actually the one who died of a broken heart. Those 2 were soul mates, and they left the word at almost the same time.

I thought it was so well done, and such a tribute to 2 lovely lades.

My heart goes out to Billie Lourd, who at age 24,lost her Mom & Grandmom, and Todd Fisher, who lost his Mom & his sister.

Nothing will bring them back, but this film will be such a great memory for their family now, and for generations to come.
