A Viewer from Texas, 28 November 2005
Author: MarieAnhriette from Plano, TX

I watched "The Stranger I Married" as it is named here in the US last night and again today. I have to say that there were several times during the movie that I found myself crying. David James Elliott was excellent as the tortured man who had lost his past. Wendy Crewson's portrayal of the wife who wanted the husband she had known for so many years was heartbreakingly realistic. The portrayals of the three daughter was also excellent. Mr. Elliott was brilliant in the scene where he keeps saying "who am I" and "that's not me." The powerful and raw emotions he put into those words vibrated through hopefully millions of TV screens throughout the U.S. But it was the words "I'm not him, but I'll always be me" that put the exclamation point to a beautiful acting job. Mr. Elliott and Ms. Crewson are to be commended on an performance that was made even more sensitive because it was, and is a true story. The real Mr. Evanshen must be proud of Mr. Elliott's ability to bring his story to such brilliant heights.
