Touching Love Story
19 February 2000 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

I thought that this was a very cute, touching love story. Marie Osmond always has such a kindness and sweetness about her that I couldn't help but care for her character and feel for her when she was being forced into a arranged marriage all the while her heart was with another man. I thought that the movie was very well done and it is the type of movie you walk away moved by.
