Lovely Romantic movie!
20 August 2003 | by kenday1See all my reviews

Beautiful story and scenery! Great chemistry between Alex (Stuart Wilson) and Lily (Cheryl Ladd). Alex looks so pitifully sweet toward the last scene of the movie! I loved that! If the story hadn't ended the way it did, I would have been UPSET!!! This is one of my favorites for romantic movies. 10/10
