PLOT:

Julia Bedford is a dedicated homemaker whose world is rocked when in her divorce; she is left with next to nothing. When Julia finally hits rock bottom and finds herself living in her car, she decides to begin her comeback and ultimately discovers what is really valuable in life.


Movie Review:

This is an interesting and inspiring movie. Julia Bedford starts the movie out as a well-off Married Woman who seems to have it all - until her husband leaves her.

Julia is robbed, ends up in the hospital, loses her apartment, and she loses the little amount of money she got in the marriage settlement, and does end up living in her car. Help from new friends gets her through tough times and her own determination to make a better life for herself and her daughter.

There is also the happenstance of a new relationship with the son of the man she is working for... and this father and son add such a sweet addition to the story. Their help for Julia is the most precious- when they surprise Julia with Christmas lights added to the home she is pretending to be hers over the Holidays!

It's a story with such real aspects of life - that inspires and encourages.



See or Skip:

See! May not entertain small children, but it's definitely one that older children and families could see together.
