Trivia

Director Steven Woodcock had two actresses in mind for the lead character of Ellen Hardy: Lesley Dunlop and Barbara Marten. Barbara Marten was unavailable because she was a regular in the BBC TV series Casualty (1986). Lesley Dunlop accepted the role but dropped out at the last minute because she was offered a regular part in the ITV TV series _"Where the Heart Is" (2000)_. By this time Barbara Marten had decided to leave Casualty and Steven Woodcock delayed filming so she could take the part, her first after leaving the BBC. See more »

Beautiful mediation on love
21 September 2006 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

This jewel of a film is strictly for romantics. The film is a quiet character study of a woman who finds the courage to open herself to the possibilities of love and happiness. After a lifetime of repression and fear of disappointing family, the lead character can no longer deny the intense feelings that have developed between herself and her son's schoolteacher, and finally allows herself to experience what she really wants. The film may not contain the flash and raunchiness that many viewers are used to (no kissing, although there is some very heart-warming hand-holding), but for this viewer, it was stirring and captivating, and one of the most vividly romantic pieces I've seen in a long time. Magnificent acting highlighted this beautiful story.
