I would highly recommend this movie to others.
16 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Alex Carter is absolutely gorgeous. The love scene on the beach was to die for; had to tune in for the next two showings to see it again and again. I was fortunate enough to catch him on a rerun of CSI. Cannot wait to see him in other roles. Watch out for this guy, people--he is not going away. I had read The Mermaid Chair and loved it. I thought Lifetime showed a very good screen adaptation and stayed true to the story. Sue Monk Kidd also wrote The Secret Life of Bees; might want to check it out-a really good read. Love Bruce Greenwood. Kim Basinger looked wonderful, haven't seen much of her in a while. Her wardrobe was pretty, too. One should also check out Thomas Merton's prayer that Father Thomas spoke of to Father Dominique. It is a beautiful prayer, very thought provoking. Yes, it is definitely a chick flick and I along with several friends really enjoyed it.
