Storyline

Jenny Cole lives with her husband and son in middle America. She is pregnant and starts to have very vivid dreams about a small city that has a big church. She then starts talking to her mother about it and her mother shows her some drawings she made when she was a child. To her amazement they are identical to the drawings from her dreams that she is now having. Jenny and her mother do research and find that the dreams are about a small town called malahide in Ireland in the 1930s. The mother gives Jenny, her son and her husband tickets to go to Ireland, so that she can find out about her dreams. Had Jenny lived in the past after all as Mary Sutton? Written by Rosemea D.S. MacPherson

One Soul Reaching Another Soul
2 December 2004 | by whpratt1See all my reviews

This was a very soul searching film with great acting by Jane Seymour who played (Jenny Cole/Mary Sutton,"Touching Wild Horses",'02. Jenny Cole seems to have troubling dreams about a family in a small town in Ireland where a woman has to put up with a drunkard of a husband and a child abuser. He is told that his wife with lose her life if she has any more children and her husband is too busy drinking to really care. There is great photography in Ireland and former veteran actor Hume Cronyn,(Sonny Sutton),"The Pelican Brief",'92, plays the older son to Mary Sutton and gives a great supporting role. You will need some tissues to view this film and some belief in the Spiritual World!
