Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member Good drama. Very good true story of a young woman who overcomes all obstacles in her way. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member 5.5/10. A little too sappy, but the earnest performances by the main leads are very good and heartfelt. Well meaning, but I doubt very much it is an accurate account of the title characters life, and feel it is very "Disneyized".
