For me this is the must see movie of the summer. I got excited first when I heard they where turning this book into a movie. Then to hear it stars Julia Roberts & Shirley MacLaine!I'm in!

"I believe that two people are connected at the heart, and it doesn't matter what you do, or who you are or where you live; there are no boundaries or barriers if two people are destined to be together."
~Julia Roberts
