Storyline

April has just graduated from an exclusive Southern college. She's just returned home to her family mansion to prepare for her semi-arranged marriage to "the right man", a man approved by April's father, a Senator. During a trip to the local fair, April meets Perry, the kind of man she always wanted but never knew. Her parents are aghast, as Perry is exactly the kind of man they don't want her associating with. April must reconcile the expectations of her family and her fiancée with the passion she feels for Perry. Written by Murray Chapman <muzzle@cs.uq.oz.au>

Beautiful....
12 April 2004 | by (Gateshead, England) – See all my reviews

....this is my favourite film ever! I love it sooo much, beautiful cast for a start, Sherilyn Fenn and Richard Tyson are the most gorgeous couple and have great chemistry together. I first saw this film when I was 15 years old, I was desperate to watch it and my big sister let me!!since then i've been facinated by passion and fantasies. It truly awakens all your desires, the music is sooo haunting and beautiful, the scenery is breathtaking, I never knew a carnival could be so erotic! This is pure drama, remember those first flutters you have at the beginning of love, well this film takes you back to that wonderful feeling and it does everytime you watch it! 10/10
