One of the Best Movies of the Year: October Baby

March 28th, 2012


I didn’t expect to be blown away. But I was.

Apparently I wasn’t the only one.  This movie was rejected by the major studios and yet it has become a sleeper hit — blitzing the box offices and coming in second only to Hunger Games.

It’s a complete blockbuster of a movie.  And it deserves every bit of its success.

I was mesmerized from the start of the movie and couldn’t take my eyes off of the screen until the end. I haven’t cried this much since “Les Miserables,” and haven’t seen this good a movie in a long, long time.

I imagine that you’ve heard the premise.  A young girl discovers a secret about her past which shakes her world.  She then takes a journey to find out who she really is.

Or as one viewer (Jan Scruggs) eloquently put it:

“As the mother of three adopted children,I think this film is a must-see for all that want to understand more about the heart-ripping journey that all adopted children must take as they come to terms with being rejected by one family and wanted by another……………There was not a “dry eye in the house” because all ages were touched by this hurting teenager searching for meaning to her life. We have all been there.”


It’s an incredible story, and if you watch it you won’t be disappointed.

Movie viewers at Rotten Tomatoes gave it a 94%

Some of the professional reviewers hated it.

I couldn’t figure out what in the world they could find wrong with it.  But then I saw their reviews, and realized that what they said told me more about the reviewers than it did about the movie. It appears that others had the same impression.*

I urge you to go and see the movie for yourself.  You won’t regret it.




Other great reviews….
