The story, the music, the scenery - I love this movie!
13 March 2006 | by juliearleenSee all my reviews

Eve of Understanding is an interesting and moving story about one girl's journey that includes locations in Austin and Katy, TX and beautiful Sedona, AZ. You might say this is a drama, but there is plenty of comedy in it as well. Our heroine encounters many very interesting and often comic characters in her quest for "Understanding." I felt that in some small way, I was able to gain some personal insight as a result of viewing this film. The story is intriguing and not completely revealed until the end. The scenery is breathtaking and the music is hauntingly beautiful. The acting by Rebecca Lowman is outstanding! This is one movie really worth experiencing!
