Brilliant! Wonderful script, acting, music and message.
One of the reviews below states "I notice most of the negative reviews have been posted by men who obviously have no sensitivity." Well, as a 51 yr old man, I can tell you that I really loved this film and it did touch my heart and spirit. One of the best films that I have seen!
The three lead actresses were superb, especially Alison Elliott as Percy. It was all so 'real', and portrays small town life in an authentic, respectful manner. Everything was refreshing, including the deeper messages about life's struggles regarding relationships and inner psychological problems.
"Why aren't more films this good?" Indeed !!
For me, this film is better than "Fried Green Tomatoes" since it is not so blatantly anti-male (think about this!).
