Poignant Love Story
13 December 2004 | by jvmcgovernSee all my reviews

If you love "the Irish" and know that love happens...and not just to the young...this may be what you are looking for. It is a sweet story about a relationship that grows over years.You might be able to predict the ending but you will want to watch it again. Angelia is excellent ...supporting cast could be stronger.If you liked "Shadowland" or "Simply Sarah" you will enjoy this! A story that a woman who has given much and served others can find something some happiness for herself.This might be in the category of a "chick flick" for mature women, but my spouse enjoyed it too! In comparison with more recent love stories it is far more subdued but a touching sweet story...wish we had more of them!
