Special Features

  • Featurette - Rosie O'Donnells vision: The Making of America
  • Closed Captioned


In this made-for-TV movie from the Lifetime Channel, Rosie O'Donnell stars as Dr. Maureen Brennan, a child psychiatrist who helps a 16-year-old boy named America (Philip Johnson) overcome years of childhood trauma, including growing up with a crack-addicted mother and being shuffled through a series of foster homes. The teleplay is based on a novel by E.R. Frank, who used her real-life experiences as a social worker as the basis for this tragic but ultimately hopeful story of transformative healing. ~ Kimber Myers, Rovi

    This is a MUST buy!!!!


    I am a social work major. Now Im not too big on Rosie Odonld, but I gave the movie a chance when it came on lifetime. The movie had me in tears. It showed the essesence of what it is like to be in a foster care facility and sheds light on the term" falling thru the cracks".It also shows how a little goes farn no natter who it is thats helping! This is a must watch!
