Really good movie with excellent acting. I felt bad for both sets of parents.

Well crafted movie. Great acting by both sets of parents, but especially Barry Pepper & Mira Sorvino. Difficult story, but well told. Although it can be painful to watch, it allows for the possibility of healing and shows no love is greater than a parent's for their child..

What a heart wrenching movie. So real, well acted, very sad. It is easy to judge other's, but the question is, what would you do if it was you?

Very enjoyable. I feel for the adopted parents that this has happened to and their outcome was not good.

A compelling drama that explores the different meanings of being a parent through the gritty, realistic lives of the struggling, blue-collar Porters, and the privileged Campbell family. Their lives intersect, intertwine and collide, all for the love of a little boy. This film bravely exposes the humanity in each character reminding us that we each have the potential to be the best and worst versions of ourselves at any time

Wendy: "But will you just let him know that he has two mothers? One that loved him so much that she couldn't let him go and another who loved him so much that she had to?"
