Movie will touch your heart
11 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie when it first aired on television around 10 years ago. Both my husband and I were drawn to it especially because we were in interracial married couple living in the south. We didn't expect it to be so personal and topical.

This movie explores love between soul mates and demonstrates that this kind of strong attraction is not so much about the outside but the deep psychic bonds that can occur between people. Timothy Hutton plays one of his best roles as the lover committed to his love. Both of them are put under extreme social pressures that only the bond between soul mates can survive.

This isn't a gushy romance movie in the tacky sense. It's a love story played out against the challenges of the political and social times that never lets you forget that hearts are involved. You'll wish you had been so lucky to experience love at this level.

I was.
