Storyline

Story of a New England boys' school and of one of the students who is infatuated with an instructor's wife who has Multiple Sclerosis. The woman struggles to show her strict husband how love rather than demands helps the student to blossom, but finally she falls into a coma. While she is able to have some 'looking down' awareness of what is happening, her coma is what brings her husband to an understanding of the needs of others.

Beautiful & Moving...Brilliant!
14 February 2011 | by See all my reviews

One of the most beautiful Films I've ever seen. Every scene is a piece of pure artwork. It's great seeing some of these great actors during this time in their careers. Brilliant directing & cinematography. The screenplay/writing is substantive, honest and heart-felt. Anyone who loves movies should see this film. Very imaginative considering the subject matter. I love the setting and era oriented backdrops, still remains fresh and relevant for today however.Really cool! I see why this was selection at Sundance! Seem like there might be a basis for a TV series here. a clinic in film-making.Im not too macho to admit...I cried. Bravo!
