While on the ferris wheel, they lean forward as their carriage goes by the ride operator. Leaning forward is listed as one of the most dangerous things passengers can do because of the lack of seat belts. Any ride operator working on the ferris wheel at any park, fair, or carnival are supposed to tell the passengers to stop leaning forward. See more »
You sneaked off inexplicably, need I remind you how I worried?
No. You reminded me enough the night I came back.
You're not suggesting I enjoyed that?
God, no. That would make you a monster.

Unlike some, I LIKE this lady and this is my favourite film of hers. After watching it for the nth time I was moved to buy the book on which it is based and this is a far more complex affair than the film, which simplifies everything and leaves out several characters altogether. I think Nancy Price did a far better job of studying an abused wife, who never really stopped loving her brute of a husband, than the makers of the film. It depicts Sara/Laura as a far more interesting character than the somewhat insipid Julia Roberts version.
If you have read the book, then some little touches in the film (i.e. - African Violets) become clearer.
