A Classic May December Love story
8 July 2004 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a wonderful and tender story about a young woman coming of age and within that, finding a deeper love within her soul with a man who just happens to be older. The beauty of this tale is there was never a physical relationship between the two but more importantly, this movie shows and demonstrates if this were a perfect work, how pure and blind love can and maybe should be.

Tatum played this part perfectly as a young teenage girl falling in love with a man, Richard Burton who showed and gave her respect, love, honesty and trust. Richard plays an out of work painter who was on his last leg when this bright light came into his world. This light shined so loudly it overwhelmed him and in doing so, sparked new life into his tired and somewhat forgotten soul. He begins to paint again and thus he is reborn.

I personally enjoyed and love what this movie stands for. If you have ever loved and lost and yet never ever forgotten the truth that was there when you felt such powerful and sincere emotions, then this movie is indeed for you.

This movie belongs right along with such classics as Roman Holiday, A portrait of Jenny and any movie where color and age are timeless.
