Did You Know?


Eugene: So how come you decided to leave home tonight?
Jackie: I decided to leave a couple of months ago but every time I started planning it for real, I started feeling kind of guilty... like I would hurt my mom's feelings for leaving... or my friends would think I was looking down on them because I didn't want to hang out watching TV anymore. I want to do something different, but I guess I've just been feeling guilty about leaving.
Eugene: Why is tonight any different?

27 March 2005 | by (Richardson, TX) – See all my reviews

This was not too bad a movie about a far-away romance. A young girl wanders out to a desert plateau in New Mexico and speaks into the wind. She is shocked when she gets a response, from a guy 500 miles away in Arizona. It seems as if they have found a wind tunnel which enables them to communicate over a great distance. Seven years later, they reconnect and discuss life's circumstances.

I thought the movie was OK. It had themes about following your heart and desires and encouraging others to do the same. I also thought it was too slow in some places, but that wasn't too bad. It had nice touches of romance and good conversations between the too leads. It was a decent movie at best.

** 1/2 out of ****
