Deep Reverence for Wendy Crewson's range as an actress
18 October 2003 | by (Kalamazoo, Michigan) – See all my reviews

When I was introduced to McNally 'Mac' Hays due to Wendy Crewson's powerful portrayal of her character in "An Unexpected Love", I now have the image of EXACTLY what kind of woman I hope to someday share my life with. Wendy's ability to create a character that is incredibly human, kind, in touch with and secure in the fact that she is gay, and yet incredibly vulnerable as she entertains the possibilities of a new relationship while still recovering from past hurts is the stuff that life is made of... what we all struggle with every day, regardless of our sexual orientation. To watch Mac second-guess herself while simultaneously following her heart has given me a mirror to look into that is so incredibly reflective of my own life, I could do little but press the rewind button and watch this movie over and over again.

Thank you, Wendy, from the bottom of my heart. Your talents as an actress have healed a place in me I thought would never awaken.

Susan
