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.

Spiritual and Moving
3 February 1999 | by See all my reviews

This was an incredibly moving film. I had heard about it when it was at Sundance and waited to see it when it came out in theatres, but it never came to my area. Then, there it was at Blockbusters. I rented it and was thrilled. It was a moving and spiritual film with incredible performances (especially Joanna Going). It is a perfect evocation of the era (60s). The story, of a woman who has MS and starts to believe that she can leave her body when she sleeps, is a beautiful metaphor. Her dreams start to become almost like a heroin addiction -- a way for her to be able to deal with her life that she can't seem to come to grips with when she's awake. See it. I highly recommend it.
