There is always room to look up to someone admirable.

You can't look up to yourself, unless there are two of you. Image

What does the world mean?



In the paper today, there was a birth notice, and I took notice of the parents name, because, their last name was PIOTROWSKI. As this is not a common last name, I wondered, if maybe they were some distant relation to Barbara. Image

She and thingy Minns met in 1977...although the movie is set years from then...

The above link is where the info comes from.

Please don't delete this, as this info is on public record, so cannot be that private, and besides, I think we should all admire this lovely young woman...she been through a lot, and she picked herself up, and moved on, and now she is happily married. Image

Oh and sorry for the mnay posts, didn't think it would all fit into the one post...

Anyway, have a read, very interesting, she was quite famous, it seems. Image


Thanks for this...I love the movie. Did she REALLY miscarried the baby?

Some things I don't get:

The character in the movie becomes bitter and angry when she learns of her paralysis, because this is a more "normal" response. Still, I think it's a shame that it was done that way, because it doesn't acknowledge the power of prayer and the gratitude we owe for our good fortune.

This move is not my life story. I served as a member of the production team and as a technical advisor. I also had an infinitely tiny acting part, which was great fun. A few events form my life became a springboard for the script.


This is my favorite part:Shannon Doherty was an angel who put in endless hours training for this role. I think she gave what read in the script as a weak, self-possessed, whiny character an extraordinary strength.

Love and Hugs,

Kris

While most of the film is based on fact, there are always parts in the film that are added to make the story seem 'more interesting'

Janni was never pregnant, as far as I know, and she was never raped, also as far as I know. The rape was added to make a story for her meeting Dick. Image

Most movies are a little bit more exaggerated then the real thing.
So I'm guessing it's based on a true story?
