Storyline

On the invitation of her childhood best friend Patsy McCann née Willets, famed opera singer Francesca Prine - whose real name is Marie Beck - returns to Marmora, Ontario to sing in a benefit concert. Patsy and Marie were best friends from the time Marie and her family arrived in Marmora when she was ten years old to the time she left Marmora at age fifteen, which was thirty years prior. With the exception of Don Rayford on who Marie had a crush, Patsy was shy Marie's only friend in Marmora. However, Marie and Patsy have not been in touch since due to issues that drove Marie out of town at the time. Those issues include Marie being physically abused by her alcoholic mother, but most specifically what happened the evening of the Sadie Hawkins dance - where Don accompanied Marie - and post dance down by the railroad tracks. Marie and Patsy's reunion may not be able to endure the thirty years of silence and the events of that night. Written by Huggo

This was really good!
3 April 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I borrowed this DVD from a friend and I really thought this was a great movie! I thought the acting, writing......everything was really good and found it easy to follow despite the flashbacks throughout the movie. I really could relate to the character Marie/Franchesca in temperament more than anything as I also tend to be a little high strung, sensitive and have that artistic nature within me. Also, it took guts for her character to come back to a place that was hell on earth for her. I could not blame her for leaving in the first place! Also, abuse survivors tend to change their identities at some point so could also understand why Marie changed her name. Patsy was more practical and realistic but that is what makes a best friend who she is: someone who is totally opposite from ourselves and one we can learn from. It sorta reminded me of my long time friend since the 5th grade. Nothing alike or in common except a lifetime of friendship. Great movie and kudos to all involved!
