    The film depicts the life of Elizabeth "Liz" Murray. While the film deals with heavy subject matter such as poverty, drug use, child abuse, and sexual abuse. The movie is a good portrayal of overcoming hard times. While is difficult to see at times is a good movie especially for Lifetime standards which is surprising and with the strong acting of its lead Thora Birch, she carries the film with her acting and portrayal of the title character that you feel every moment as if you where in the situation with her. Overall is a great and memorable film.

    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.
