Why We Love It

A socially-conscious film that is based on a true story, A Place for Annie was nominated for the 1994 Emmy for Best Made for Television Movie. The all-star performances of Sissy Spacek and Mary-Louise Parker bring the film to a whole other level, and the twin girls who play the role of Annie are absolutely adorable. This emotionally-driven tale is heartwarming without being overly sappy, but you may still want to have a box of tissues ready.

Description

Abandoned by her drug-addicted mother, Annie, an HIV positive infant, is adopted by a pediatric nurse named Susan. With the help of a supportive teenaged son and a devoted nanny, Susan is able to create a loving and stable environment for little Annie. A year later the birth mother, Linda reemerges and demands custody of Annie. Susan, hoping to keep Annie any way that she can, ultimately invites Linda to come live with her and, over time, the two women develop a common bond in their love for Annie.
