“Sometimes we make our own families…”

Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “‘Expecting Mary’ is the story of pregnant young Mary, who’s had all the trappings of an upscale life, but it’s only when she finds herself in a small New Mexico town, in a down-trodden trailer park, that she learns the real meaning of love, sacrifice and family. Dan Gordon (screenwriter of ‘Wyatt Earp’ and ‘The Hurricane’) marks his directorial debut with this effervescent dramedy. This is the kind of film that you will want to take your family to. A movie where grandparents want to take grandchildren, when parents want to take the kids and when families want to share a motion picture experience, which neither insults them, nor offends them, and which champions the values they and their families hold dear.”

Positive—This film made me proud to be a moral person. I saw it… ran home and called my 81 year old mom and my 14 year old niece and told them each they MUST see it. Morals in a film… imagine that. I laughed out loud to good humor without cursing… and cried, because I was so inspired by the most human emotions I have seen on film in ages.
My Ratings: Moral rating: Excellent! / Moviemaking quality: 5
