Storyline

Erik Eriksen, who has become a successful pianist in New York, is back in Templeton, his Mormon community, where he is still treated distrustfully by its members, including his family, for having 'betrayed' them in not living the life God had planned for him. Only his mother and his younger brother Jens, support him unconditionally. Erik falls in love with Chelnica, a beautiful young woman who plays the piano at the local cinema and a dedicated Mormon. The big trouble is that she is also Jens's fiancée, due to marry him soon... Written by Guy Bellinger

A good movie for a rainy Sunday.
23 May 2003 | by (the beautiful Charles) – See all my reviews



I caught this movie on Lifetime and decided to give it a try. Although the plot was predictable the ending will have you screaming "NOOOOOO". This movie is a send up to the kinds of stories they had you reading in High school English class where there's not a lot of action but more of an exploration of the human character with love as both the motivating and destroying force for all (think a cross between "A Light in August" and "the Great Gatsby"). If your an atheist you will probably hate this movie since religious convictions play a major role for the characters. Although flawed it's a beautiful story of how love can both heal you and hurt you. Definitely a movie for a rainy day.
