Then She Found MeFollowing the separation from her husband and the death of her adopted mother, April Epner is contacted by her apparent birth mother, who turns out to be a local talk show host Bernice Graves. As Bernice tries to become the mother to April that she was never able to be, April seems to find solace in the arms of the parent of one of her students, only to find that the mystery to life's questions cannot be solved by a simple revelation.
Has anyone seen this one yet? I saw it last night and was surprised at how much it affected me. I'm not a huge Helen Hunt fan - I don't really have strong feelings about her either way - but I really loved this movie. It's Helen Hunt's directorial debut and also stars Bette Midler, Matthew Broderick and the yummy Colin Firth. It's nothing earth-shattering: just a nice little drama where people actually act like real people.
