Almost missed this one.
4 January 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I almost didn't watch this movie because of the "one *" given it in the newspaper, but I couldn't find the remote easily and so let it happen. And am glad I did.

This is a very good romantic movie with two strong attractive characters. It never gets too sweet and we see how a woman we might think has everything really has little to fulfill her. She finds herself happiest under very rough conditions where her efforts mean something.

Brannan faces the loss of his family legacy that has been his life's work because of a bad choice he made; and he faces it like a man.

It also proves that a movie can show the developing love and respect of a man and a woman without having them jump into bed. It has exciting, tense moments and you can watch this with your parents or grandparents and not be embarrassed. Love this film. Gave it an 8.
