Moving small town in modern times/romance-movie
29 April 2000 | by fencer-4See all my reviews

This is the kind of movie that should be made more often. It simply tells two heart-warming tales. One of how two young people in a small town fall in love. The other of how a town whose existence is based on a lumber-mill, through the people of the town, lead by the two young-ones-in-love, is saved from ruin. Swank shows why she got this year's oscar. The combination of Hillary Swank and Eddie Mills is a perfect match.

If you get the chance and like movies that just make you feel good, you should not pass this one up!!!
