Very Different
5 February 2005 | by (El Cajon, California) – See all my reviews

I liked this movie and recommend it to others. It was a bit different than what I normally watch. It was so interesting to watch Rory grow up in the short time of the span of the movie. At first he is much like a 17 year old boy wanting to get under his girlfriend's skirt, but then doing the "honorable" thing and marrying her. His life is destroyed by the death of his childhood love and rebuilt by a strong woman who knew what a grown up love was like.

In the end his life is turned up side down and in a terrifying moment he reaches for the one woman who he knew loved him and that he had grown to love.
