When your mothers gone growing up can be a little difficult. Especially as a little girl. In the touching drama, Corrina Corrina, an 8 year old girl is suffering the loss of her mother. Not only has it been difficult on her, it’s been just as hard for her father as well as other adults around her.

Molly decides to go mute as a way of coping with her grieving, however this is difficult on the father so he attempts to seem help, and after numerous interviews he finally finds Corrina ( Whoopi ) who helps him reconnect with his little girl Molly.
While Manny singer is still grieving the loss of his wife, he’s also trying to maintain his job while being there for his daughter. As we all know life gets a little difficult to deal with at times but, when you have a child/children looking up to you there’s no days off.
The movie portrays him as the perfect father when he’s in the presence of his daughter but behind closed doors he’s suffering just as much as his little girl.
Molly decides that she no longer wants to communicate with anyone, she begins to rebel in silence which seemed to be out of character to her father, but that was her way of dealing with her pain. Along with pain comes anger and when a person is angry we feel that every action of ours is justifiable.
The movie teaches us that with a little faith In god and plenty of time getting over losses will be a lot more tolerable.
Whoopi is brought in to the movie as a housekeeper, who spends some time with Molly, and is able to slowly bring Molly back to life. She would let her know that it’s ok to miss her mother and its ok to be upset or angry, but to understand that once a person is deceased they no longer exist physically but they now live within their loved ones. And most importantly to love the person grieving with you even more as you’ve both lost loved ones, and it’s easier to cope with love than it is with anger.
Once we accept the fact that death is certain and irreversible we then find peace with in our selfs to let go and move on.
