“One of the most carefully crafted, most professional films [of 2001] … the characters are enormously interesting and likeable [and] gorgeous.” -Robert Ebert
“The story this movie portrays is one of the most touching and heart-wrenching stories I’ve ever heard. When watching this movie, I was so caught up in the lives of these girls it was hard for me to bring myself back into my own life. I seriously believe this movie has opened my eyes to how truly important love is in this world, no matter what form it comes in.”
