Audience Reviews for ...First Do No Harm

Meryl is impassioned in this story dealing with an important and little known issue.

A subject close to my heart which made for emotional viewing. A Mother?s love and determination to do absolutely anything it takes to make her son well.

Meryl Streep as always gives her role everything she has and the rest of the main cast played good roles too.

I can?t see any Mother?s out there not liking or relating their feelings to this film, a great watch.
