A beautiful, haunting story.
21 February 2001 | by (Austin, Texas) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie at the Spindletop Film Festival in Beaumont, Texas and was surprised to find myself in a theater full of crying people. It is a beautiful, dreamlike story of intense emotional realism, and a movie I will not soon forget. Why don't movies like this get distributed nationally?
