A Beautiful And Engrossing Movie
20 November 1998 | by (Princeton, NJ) – See all my reviews

This is one of the movies I never tire of seeing again. Beautiful sailing scenes, but you don't have to know anything about sailing to appreciate it. The cast did an earnest and excellent job. It must have been a labor of love to make. Don't miss it.
