Storyline

Story of a New England boys' school and of one of the students who is infatuated with an instructor's wife who has Multiple Sclerosis. The woman struggles to show her strict husband how love rather than demands helps the student to blossom, but finally she falls into a coma. While she is able to have some 'looking down' awareness of what is happening, her coma is what brings her husband to an understanding of the needs of others.

Interesting if slow at times.
25 September 2003 | by wxbee1731See all my reviews

Decent acting. Keeps you wondering where the spiritual part of the movie is going- I am still wondering. Sympathy for a beautiful woman cut down in the prime of life. Good character development except for the father whose acting was one dimensional). Gives a kind of better understanding of the effects of MS and how the rest of us take daily living chores for granted. Also the two background college boarders (friends of Edgar)were unconvincing and did not convey any feelings across the screen that I could discern.
