5.0 out of 5 stars BEAUTIFUL movie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! November 24, 2001
By Grace
Format:VHS Tape
This is one of the best movies I have ever seen. Not only is it just a really sweet story, but it also has a wonderful message behind it. The acting was excellent and they got an adorable pair of twins to play the role of little Annie. This movie has a lot of sensitivity in it. It all starts when Susan Lansing, a nurse at a local hospital, takes in an abandoned baby. This child, who tested HIV-positive at birth, seems to have nobody who is willing to take her in--nobody except Susan, that is. With the help of a supportive teenage son and a devoted nanny, Susan is able to create a lovingly stable living environment for little Annie. Everything is turned upside-down a year later, when Annie's birth mother returns to claim her. Linda Marsten, the baby's mother, is clearly very young, and her husband has died as a result of drug overdose. Emotionally unable to hand Annie over to her drug addicted birth mother, Susan invites Linda to come live with them in their home. It is during this time that Linda creates a close bond with her child and comes to terms with everything that she left behind when she abandoned her newborn baby at the hospital. At the same time, Linda and Susan learn to put their differences aside and use their shared love for Annie to develop a sort of unsteady friendship with each other. At the end of the movie, it is Linda's selfless love for her daughter that leads her to make the most difficult decision she has ever had to make that will ultimately shape Annie's future. The movie really made me want to cry, especially at the part where Annie was taken away from Susan for the first time when Linda took her for an overnight visit. I think that Mary Louise Parker (Linda) did an EXCELLENT acting job in this movie. She really knew the part well, and she knew how to perform it. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars A Movie To Cherish. October 2, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
I am a lover of the, 'Hallmark Hall Of Fame' movies because they are clean and family oriented. Movies like 'A Place For Annie' helped seal their place in my home. I have a collection of these wonderful films and I will continue to collect them.
'A Place For Annie,' is a true story about a head pediatric nurse, 'Susan Lansing' (played by Sissy Spacek.) Lansing gets attached to an infant patient, (Annie) who at birth tested positive for HIV. Little Annie was also born addicted to heroine and was deserted shortly after birth by her birth mother. When no one would accept this baby, with HIV, as a foster child Susan decides to become Annie's foster mother. She makes it her mission to give this terminally ill child a home and love for as many days as the baby has left.
This movie is wonderful. The performances by the cast are spectacular. The plot is touching and considerably strong. The overall movie quality etc, is well above average. Very few movies are powerful enough to bring such emotion as this film delivers. Through tear filled eyes, I watched as this story of `true miracles` unfolded. This movie illustrates the power of love and family and gives us the bitter with the sweet of real life. 'A Place For Annie,' is a movie to cherish, and I, BTW, highly recommend it to you. You will thank your lucky stars that you could, in some way, share in the life of Annie and her remarkable, adoptive mother.

3.0 out of 5 stars Earnest, Often Touching Drama August 8, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
I read recently that upon becoming a mother several years ago, Oscar winning actress Sissy Spacek pulled back considerably on her career and began accepting a few acting assignments a year, usually ones of (what she felt was) social significance. Obviously the role of nurse Susan Lansing, who takes in an HIV-positive infant as a foster child, filled that particular bill. A PLACE FOR ANNIE is a socially conscious a film as one could ask for. It is also an OK drama in and of itself, although hardly a masterpiece...Of course, you have to be receptive to this kind of three-hanky dramatic fare. But hey, those of us who would even bother to sit down for this kind of weep-fest have to admit that basically we're suckers for the genre. It helps when you've got a stellar cast on hand (along with Spacek, you've got Joan Plowright, Mary-Louise Parker, LAW AND ORDER'S S. Epatha Merkerson and the young Jack Noseworthy, all very good indeed). And the kid is adorable. The film tugs shamelessly at the heartstrings, but it doesn't--completely--wear its heart on its sleeve. A lot of credit goes to the capable cast who tend to underplay their roles. Spacek--and the rest of the cast here--may be partial to socially conscious fare, but they're smart enough not to lay it on too thick.

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVED it! August 6, 2002
By Grace
Format:VHS Tape
I don't think I've ever seen any other movie made with so much passion, sensitivity, and love. When you watch it, you don't feel like you're watching a movie; the story is incredibly real, as is the acting and the presented situations. Infected with HIV and abandoned at birth by her AIDS infected single mother, little Annie is given a miracle when one of the nurses (Susan Lansing, played to perfection by Sissy Spacek)takes her in. Annie is well-established in her new home until Linda, her very young biological mother, returns for custody. Unable to provide for Annie and selfishly unwilling to leave her with Susan, Linda reluctantly moves in with Susan's family. Linda is then given a chance to understand her mistakes, take responsibility for them, and become more conscious of her love for Annie--conscious enough to do what is best for her, even though it is very hard. You will never forget this movie. I stumbled across it by accident in a local Hallmark store, and I am so lucky I did because it seems to be a difficult-to-find videotape. Do whatever you can to get your hands on this, but make sure you see it!
