A truly uplifting story about a girl who has problems at home and doesn't go to school often but gets to go to Harvard. This is an ok movie. The acting was a little edgy on some moments but it was good acting overall. This is like most decent TV movies so don't really expect anything too special. C+. The Liz Murray story deserves a better movie.

Inspiring true story of from poverty and neglect to self made opportunity, The pursuit of Happyness is a amazing story, but this one surpasses it. Outstanding acting by the young and older version of Liz Murray

A real sleeper of a truly moving story...one of the closest to real life that I've seen. Solid performances and compelling plot. Likely viewers will see situations and relationships they have witnessed in their own lives, and with which they'll empathize and/or identify. This is a don't miss movie.

What a beautiful story. One of the best movies I've ever watched. Powerful, emotional... simply inspirational. Words cannot describe the intensity of this tough, life changing story. It brings a new perspective to life, and gives you the chance to see that life isn't so bad... and even when it is, you can still conquer anything you put your mind to. Liz Murray, her will to survive and her desire to become a better person, redefine the word "strong". A great movie for anyone who has ever felt like life can't get any worse.

Hope, determination and strength are the 3 main components that the movie thrives on, the movie projects a positive message. It's worth the watch.

Thora Birch can do no wrong, in this Lifetime Made for TV movie based on the life of Liz Murray who spent the majority of her youth on the streets becomes an inspiration to everyone when she's accepted to Harvard. The movie proves that rags to riches is possible, we've all heard numerous times of 'The American Dream' this is the perfect example. The movie takes you on a journey of discovery where ones dreams and passions can be possible if you believe in yourself.

Interesting seeing the actress from Juno starring in something so different. At times I found it hard to believe I was looking at the same person.
