Beautiful story but with Bible Belt attitudes
29 December 2003 | by laurelmtnguySee all my reviews

watching this movie a few times with friends etc, we agreed upon that although it takes place in modern times it seems like the characters were uptight in showing their true feelings because of belief systems instilled upon the characters upbringings. This movie has beautiful scenery with some sordid entanglements but it brings to light that as Love of the heart goes it can find its way through the most stubborn of circumstances! Dan Montgomery is drop dead gorgeous and so is Walton Goggins, One just wishes the outcome would have been a little more romantic than it was! I bet a lot of people who are trapped in society's little headgames who cannot truly display their affections might wish for a Walton to come into their life and start living. The film does not by any means make a straight person feel uncomfortable at all by watching it, in fact it makes them think! I loved this movie and I wish it well!
