Simple, beautiful and very touching. The first reason why I watched this movie was Natalie Portman. She looks amazing there and not only her but everyone. It has a very beautiful story and very realistic too. Much more than you can hope for the plot of the movie, this was definitely a good discover. A movie I wanna watch it again and again & in fact it touches your heart.

I really liked this movie, it is a sweet charming story. Staring Natalie Portman and a few other stars, Natalie plays Novalee a young pregnant woman. Who finds herself dumped at a walmart, where she sets up home. While living at the wal-mart and before the baby comes, Novalee explorers the town, meeting some charming characters. Novalee goes into labour while still living at the wal-mart, but is r... read more

Honestly, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this flick but since I have a weak spot for both Natalie Portman and Ashley Judd, I still wanted to check it out. Eventually, it wasn’t really good, I’m afraid. I mean, with a title like this, you pretty much know what you will get beforehand, basically, a sappy tearjerker and, unfortunately, it didn’t really go further than this. I mean, Natalie... read more

“Honestly, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this flick but since I have a weak spot for both Natalie Portman and Ashley Judd, I still wanted to check it out.

I mean, with a title like this, you pretty much know what you will get beforehand, basically, a sappy tearjerker and, unfortunately, it didn’t really go further than this. I mean, Natalie Portman and Ashley Judd were both really charming and actually way too good for this kind of material but it was still pretty neat to see a very young Natalie Portman whose status was getting bigger and bigger every year at the time. Concerning Ashley Judd, like most actresses above 40 years old, she struggles to remain in the limelight nowadays and even though you get to see her from time to tim” read more

“I really liked this movie, it is a sweet charming story. Staring Natalie Portman and a few other stars, Natalie plays Novalee a young pregnant woman. Who finds herself dumped at a walmart, where she sets up home. While living at the wal-mart and before the baby comes, Novalee explorers the town, meeting some charming characters. Novalee goes into labour while still living at the wal-mart, but is rescued by Forney. Novalee stays in the town, and finds new friends, family and love. Like I said this is a sweet tale, and the acting from all the actors charming. Overall a very charming movie, and one I really enjoyed watching but I am a big sucker for Natalie Portman and Ashley Judd.” read more

"I loved both Natalie Portman, and Ashley in this movie. Ashley was a supporting star, but she played a good part and did a good job because I loved her character of Lexie along with Novalee played by Natalie."

" After being abandoned in middle-of-nowhere Oklahoma by her selfish boyfriend, the 17-and-pregnant Novalee Nation (Natalie Portman) does what she has to do for her and her baby by secretly living in a Wal-Mart until the child is born, six weeks later. With the help of eccentric but kind friends, Novalee is able to rebuild her life, thus creating a better one for her new daughter, Americus. Another somewhat unknown role for Portman considering all of the Star Wars and now post Oscar Hype. Soli"
