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
Horrific Writing, bad acting, pretentious directing
Awful is not a strong word in the case of this messy soap opera. While I'm not divulging any secrets of the movie plot (there is no plot to mention), you won't get to see this movie on any wide release or even a small release in the theaters. If they are lucky, a TV sale on LifeTime TV might land in the director's backyard.
This movie is like a damaged plane made of parts that cannot fit and it simply doesn't take off. The writer hasn't stop for a second to think of his writing, basically writing the movie and perhaps reading a book on how to write movies at the same time.
The director is childish to think she can direct, since any good director would change lines, direct actors to react a certain way and frame the shot so that is not in a constant 3-shot. While the cinematography is beautiful, the story tries very hard. I was actually impressed with the producing because the movie looks very good for a small budget (under $1 mil). But then again, who cares about that when the movie is a total waste of your almost 2 hours, hours that will NEVER come back.
