      Audience Member The Brooke Ellison Story is the best TV movie I have ever seen or at least the one I have enjoyed the most. It was truly poignant and beautiful. It tells a very inspiring story and it features excellent acting. I guess that in a way this little movie could be considered Christopher Reeve's last little gift he left the world before he passed away. Superman also knew how to direct movies after all.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member I missed the first hour of this movie, I ran across it on Lifetime tv when I couldn't find anything else to watch. From what I saw, it was an impressive movie! It was a rather realistic portrayal of someone paralyzed with a trach and ventilator, and the story of this woman and her mother was inspiring without being too sappy or cliched. The real woman is impressive and worth looking up! It's available on Netflix as a DVD rental. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
