         If you are looking for something different to watch on television and something that will inspire you and others around you. You should see the movie Susie's Hope. Susie's Hope is a true story that is based on the successfully passed Susie's Law in North Carolina. Susie's Law seeks stricter punishment for all animal abusers. Susie's Hope is an inspirational story about a woman who was attacked by a pit bull finding forgiveness and healing through a small pit bull mix puppy who was found beaten, burned and left for dead. Together, both survivors and victims of senseless animal abusers they learn to heal, forgive and love again. They lead a historic effort to seek justice and protection for all animals.
       I was very surprised with this DVD. I took this review not knowing how I would or would not like the movie. However, I am a big animal rights advocate and I was here in North Carolina when Susie's Law passed. Finally perpetrators of animal cruelty can receive up to ten months in jail as a result of this law. Before it most animal abusers were out on bail and just paid fines and community service. This made the punishment for animal abuse much stricter. I was very interested to see how this law was finally made in North Carolina. The story is a remarkable one that just when you think it may be corny, or easy to figure out comes out with a twist, a turn or even just a phrase out of the actor's mouths that tug at the strings of your heart and make you fall in love with this movie.
      The cast of this movie is not well known and the movie itself is not a big budget film. However, it has outstanding production quality and the acting is superb. Many characters go through dynamic emotions which is rare to find in small budget movies. There is no way you can watch Susie's Hope and not find anything great in it. It truly inspires.

         It runs about 105 minutes. It is not rated, but that is due to it being a lower budget film. I would guess if it was to be rated it would be around PG13. Although it is a lovely and inspiring film, there are some scenes of gore, attack and maliciousness that should be avoided by young children. If you are unsure, watch the movie first then make a decision for yourself if you think your children can handle it. I certainly think it is a great movie for families with older children as it shows how love and compassion really do create miracles.
         Some of my favorite moments in this film was how you see through the eyes of the dog and how the dog sees a particular object and gets frightened of it. I loved how they showed that big dogs cannot be treated nor trained, the same as smaller dogs. Too many people do not know that simple information. It was great how they said that even though dogs are property they are not the same as property. In the movie Susie's owner, Donna says "burning a sofa is not the same as burning a baby dog", I like that they bring light to the different degrees of animal cruelty that exist in our world. "The way we treat animals says a lot about humanity"- Donna, from the movie Susie's Hope.
