About the movie:
(Run time 105 minutes)
Based on the true story that successfully passed Susie’s Law in North Carolina, which seeks stricter punishment for animal abusers, Susie’s Hope brings to life the inspirational relationship between pit bull attack survivor Donna Lawrence and Susie, a pit bull-mix puppy found beaten, burned and left for dead. Recognizing reflect and abuse were to blame for the tragic attack that nearly claimed her life 10 months earlier, Donna resumes the battered animal and accepts her as family. Together, they learn to heal, love and forgive as they lead a historic effort to seek justice and protection, not only for Susie, but all animals. Starring Emmanuelle Vaguer (40 Days and 40 Nights), Burgess Jenkins (Remember The Titans) and Andrea Powell (Ender’s Game, The Twighlight: Breaking Dawn Saga: Part 2), Susie’s Hope is an incredible story of love, loss and redemption.

In My Opinion
This movie will make you fall apart one minute and then inspire you the next. What an emotional roller coaster! If you care about people and/or animals you will love this movie. The hardest part for me as I watched this movie was knowing it was based on a true story. This movie isn’t just someones idea or make believe but a true story of someones challenges and successes. I don’t want to give ANY spoilers but I will give you just the basic outline. The movie starts out with a cute couple at a great time & place in their lives. Donna, the wife, is a major animal lover, so when a neighbor leaves town her need to help kicks in. Donna and a neighbor friend both help care for this dog by bringing it food and giving it water everyday. One day, when it was just Donna at home, she went over to take care of the dog when a life altering incident took place nearly costing her life. This incident forever altered their lives and changed everything. As Donna works on coming to grips with her new reality and family dynamics things move into an unforeseen and inspiring new direction and before long Susie’s Hope was created. My children and I all sat on the edge of our seats watching the movie and grabbed for the tissues a couple times. We loved it and think most people will too.
