by Linda Kellum on 8/11/2013

Sandra Bullock is the ultimate of actresses!!! She really played Birdie great!!! I felt for her when she was dragged in front of that studio audience. Then having to become both mother and father to her daughter!!! And even Birdie's own mother was a little out there! And finally finding love from someone she wasn't expecting to! This is a good adult movie because everyone can learn something from it!! Read More

Editors Note
Note Birdee (Sandra Bullock) is an unassuming housewife whose life is disrupted when her husband (Michael Pare) reveals his infidelity to her on a Jerry Springer-style talk show. She goes home to her mother and the small town in which she grew up--where, of course, everyone knows about her televised marital collapse. Things only get worse as a family tragedy brings her ex-husband back for an official divorce. Meanwhile an old friend, Justin (Harry Connick Jr.), has entered her life, sparking a romance. While Justin's intentions are good, Birdee struggles with the decision to let him fully into her life. This 1998 sleeper was a pet project of leading actress Bullock and became a surprise hit, touching the hearts of its viewers.
USA Today "...A clutch of gemlike performances....[Whitaker] directs with sensitive, artful touches...and Caleb Deschanel's camerawork is pure poetry..." 05/29/1998 p.4E
New York Times "...Ms. Bullock makes Birdee very sympathetic and gives her a becoming humility..." 05/29/1998 p.E12
Premiere "...Painfully honest moments....Bullock stretches her acting muscles..." 05/01/1998 p.24
Los Angeles Times "...The formidable actor Forest Whitaker sensitively directs a sterling cast....HOPE FLOATS gives good value, starting with Bullock's and Rowland's knockout performances..." 05/29/1998 p.C1
