Mesmerizing
11 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was so intriguing from the moment I began to watch it, as I lay in bed trying to fall asleep, that I could not close my eyes. The method used in telling this story was new and unusual and it grabbed me from the start, and I could not turn it off. I was captivated. I wanted to see how it all came about and where it would end. I began to wonder how many others would relate to this story especially with the advent of email letters. I know there are those who live by and are attached to another's consistent words. It certainly hit home to me as to how a love can be so far removed from our own daily life, and how easy we can eliminate those you probably should have loved. Who would have thought such diverse emotions would have accompanied this movie. I have always enjoyed Laura Linney, but this movie made her a favorite for me, as well as Steven Weber. Their acting was superb. To me the movie was intense, very touching, and so eloquently done that I did not want it to end.
