A Beautiful Movie
18 August 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm glad I finally had the opportunity to watch this movie. I can remember when it came out but was not in a location where it was available. Also, I didn't know this was based on a true story prior to watching it. If you like a good love story you should enjoy it. If you like a movie that is visually beautiful you should enjoy it. If you like both you should love it, as I did. If you like neither it's worth a look anyway. Who knows, you might surprise yourself.
