Movie is generally good except for the real mom-daughter relationship which is not too explored and justified. And real mom's facial expression should at least change a bit other than looking angry/sullen most of the time, and it's too impossible there is no mother's instinct and instead berate her ex for reneging on their agreement. She should at least be thankful the other half made a different decision and by the way that their daughter grew up and seeing how lovely she has come to be should be a great pride and joy no matter what. If there are moms out there who regret giving up on their kids or abandoning them and find themselves stalking on their children - how ironic that she becomes attached to another kid in India and never for once is being shown at least just longing for someone, her daughter this time and wondering perhaps what she looks like now or whoever adopted her or if she is having a good set of parents, happy family life. ??? And just being grateful to the adoptive mom instead of being so doubting of her intentions when it comes to giving out the donation for the kids in India. She should be a 100% thinking of what it will do to the kids instead of fretting and entertaining differently of any doubtful acceptance. Hope this review strikes a chord in the heart. :-) :-(
Great storyline with a few twists, just a little slow in places.
Confused, boring, badly acted.
Touching. Great acting. Also funny and sad.
Wonderful story. Michelle and Julienne were so passionate. The twist was surprising, I hope I would have that kind of courage.
Good movie - I'm a bit biased for anything Julianne Moore!
Moore and Pfiffer are outstanding in their quite different roles. Raw emotion and loss are interwoven in all the main characters. My only disappointment was the fade out ending with loose strands left hanging. Worth seeing and riding along in the roller coaster of emotions.
The relationship is very deep between the mother and daughter until the biological mother shows up to the wedding of her own daughter she never knew. The slippery slope took effect when illness strikes hard when one must leave the earth, while the others are dealing with emotion effect on receiving 2 million dollars to help the Orphanage in Indian. A choice is so deep that one used her power and manipulated everything to go her way, or Isabel will go back to Indian without the funding. Great actress and actors. I love this movie.
Excellent but different
All the elements come together for a really good story. Authentic and moving.
