I usually avoid adoption themed movies. They are never accurate always slanted in favor of the amazing adoptive parents saving the child from their poor mothers. Â This looks interesting. Â I literally burst into tears when I watched the trailer.
I am a fan of Dame Judy as well as Steve Coogan. Â Watch this and watch for that moment when Steve tells Judy that he met her son once and he said “Hello” or “Hi”. Â Judy’s expression of amazement over the fact her son knows how to exchange a greeting kicked me right in the gut. Â She captured that perfectly. Â Mothers like me, so many of us are amazed at the most basic things our children do. We were not allowed to experience those basic expressions.
But yeah, you will see, just watch.
I pray they do this right.
