Orphan Joe Kelly has an idyllic youth growing up in the country with his grandpa, and can turn his hobby into his profession as crop spray plane pilot. After Pearl Harbor, he joins the US Air Force as bomber pilot. Joe's wife Claire is notified he's missing, presumed killed when his plane is shot down over Germany. Later a military mate reports he saw Joe alive, apparently taken POW. Claire starts searching and finally finds Joe elsewhere in the US, but suffering from amnesia, and living under the name Tommy Warner, as partner of a tiny commercial air freight firm. Written by
I think that this is a very refreshing movie. I was not assaulted with gore, foul language, unnatural "acts", rape scenes or unwarranted violence. Maybe the plot was "predictable", but didn't we know what was going to happen to the "Titanic"? The story and the acting were great and I enjoyed this "refreshing" movie. This movie gives us a small window into the the lives of the "Greatest Generation" that endured World War II and the aftermath. Our nation is forever indebted to this generation of Americans. I enjoyed the the "look" of this movie. It was beautifully shot. Some movies seem to be able to "pick you up and take you there". Beautiful Dreamer did that. I hope that there are more movies of this type in the future.
