The Best War Time Romance Movie!
22 November 2005 | by See all my reviews

Okay, I first saw this movie when I was 15 years old. I was staying up late late one night on AMC. I started from the beginning and didn't leave my room till the final scene, where I was crying my eyes out over throughout the whole movie. I couldn't believe the masterpiece I had found and wanted to tape it so bad so I could watch it again. I checked every week every day on AMC so see when it was going to come back on again and it never did.

I am now 22 and am the happiest girl in the world. Through all my searching off the internet I am not the proud owner of MIRACLE IN THE RAIN on DVD nonetheless. It took 7 years and I finally own it.

I received it yesterday and watched it. I have forgotten so much about this movie. The relationship between Art and Ruthie. The one between her mom and his "lost" father. The moment I saw Ruthie and Art was the moment I remembered as a child watching in my room late that night. I especially loved Ruthies best friend, who's name I can't remember. I watched her earlier in "The Bad Seed," another great movie.

This movie will make you laugh, and cry. You will also sympathize with Ruthie and Her mom for most of the movie. The best scene to me is the one that is the killer. I can't spoil anything but you are gonna need some tissues at this point.

I highly recommend this movie for any one who loves the old b\w just like I do and are in the mood for a little love and a little sadness.
