Great movie, sans doubt
17 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a fantastic movie. Period. I grew up very close to Cape Cod and can definitely sympathize with the characters and their beliefs/attitudes. I won't spoil this with parts I liked best, but I have to say that the back and forth through time was sadly enjoyable. To put a human's face on this great land and the traditions and future expectations of its inhabitants was just amazing. This is not just another sappy love story, it is much more than that. It is a story about change, about old vs. young, about the things in life that really matter. It reminds us that older people were once young, vibrant, and full of life, and as such, should always be treated with respect. I'm a man, but was not afraid to cry at the end of this movie. Very very few movies evoke emotion to this scale in me, and this is definitely one of them. I highly recommend this movie, especially for those who live on or near Cape Cod or any seashore for that matter :-)
