A Cross to Bear 2012

     Erica wanted to be a dancer and she was dating Trey.  He is working in the music industry.  One day her credit cards are denied and Trey says they are done as a couple.  Erica doesn’t get a chance to tell him she is having his baby.  She ends up on the street and she’s homeless plus she doesn’t have any family.  A woman leads her to a place to stay for the night but her baby dies accidentally.  Fortunately, she finds a home with Joan.  This is a women’s shelter with rules and jobs for new beginnings.  Joan is a former nurse and she practices tough love but offers a helping hand.  Erica finds a chance to turn her life around.
     Erica has trouble with drinking and she doesn’t speak for a while after she goes to live with Joan and the other women.  She’s deep in grief over her baby plus what has become of her life.  Erica can be her own worst enemy at times.  There is a very sad incident in this film.  3 ½* (I liked this movie)
