A love story. An adoption story. A birth mother story. A freaking cry fest. That's what this movie is.
Just watched "Then She Found Me" starring Helen Hunt (love her), Bette Midler and Colin Firth. It's a really good movie--a bit romantic, a bit dark, a bit heart breaking, a bit hopeful. Here's the trailer:
I really didn't know that this was about adoption. I was just hunting for a good movie from the Netflix cue. It caught me by surprise, but I stuck with it. But at one point I had to stop the movie because I was caught by huge, wracking sobs.
Now I'm not the kind of girl who cries like this. I'm not sure exactly why I was crying either. I seem to be doing a lot of this lately. Hmm..
My only complaint about the movie is that adoption seems to be depicted as a second-best choice most of the time. Over all though, I really liked this movie.
It's on the "instant" section of Netflix if you have a membership. Worth the hours (and tears).
