Amazing truths, that hurt your heart.
26 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I haven't seen any other projects that Jim Fitzpatrick has written, but this one is excellent. It has the honest feel for the lives of the middle-class people, and it tells an interesting story. Fitzpatrick plays a Soap Opera Star (which was true) who blows back into his old hometown looking for the girl he left behind 15 years earlier. Only he finds that she (Jodi Knotts) is now married to ex-best friend, played by John Bradley. You can feel how much these two loved each other. You can feel how much they want to be together. Jodi Knotts is such a joy to watch. She is one of the most interesting actresses I've ever seen. All of her inner emotions and the turmoil she feels is there in her eyes for everyone to see each time the camera looks her way. Fitzpatrick is also great as Jamie, the ex-love of her life. The rest of the main supporting cast do fine jobs as well. If you like real-life Romantic dramas, look no further. 'An American Reunion,' will envelope your heart and touch your soul...great love story at it's finest.
