Wonderful Adaption From Book to Movie
25 June 1999 | by (Illinois) – See all my reviews

Excellent Danielle Steel movie. Tightly woven, you didn't feel as if you had to read the book to know what was going on between the lines. I alternated between tears and laughter. The acting was excellent, and Cloris Leachman was perfect as a Jewish mother, concerned for her son. Tracy Pollan played the role of Liz just as Steel wrote her. This is one of those movies that you will find yourself watching again and again.
