Wonderful portrayal.
6 September 2004 | by dragonfeeder-1See all my reviews

I saw this movie for the first time and absolutely loved it. What was so incredible to me about it was the fact that it was based on a real story.

I felt that Dyan Cannon did a beautiful job portraying Sally Stanford as a true life person complete with intelligence, fortitude and humor.

Though I had never heard of Sally Standford, before this movies it prompted me to check into her life's story even further. It took great courage and determination for her to make so many changes in her life.

Kudos all around for this movie and it's cast!
