Hi! This is Classic-Kate: an aficionado of classic movies.
22 February 2000 | by (Readfield, Maine) – See all my reviews

The first time I saw Embraceable You, was three years ago, when I was sixteen years old. Consequently, it was also the last time I saw it. For the past three years, I have been searching for it everywhere, with no luck. It's been a mission of mine to find it again because I loved the premise. I thought this movie was a heartbreakingly accurate portrayal of the power of love. Through the trials that pursue the leading characters, there was this powerful emotion that couldn't separate them; that couldn't weaken their desire. I found this movie to not only be a tear-jerker, but one that emanates the powerful message, that love is ever-lasting, and undying.
