beautiful
9 March 2011 | by luvmymercedes2003See all my reviews

a beautiful, heartwarming story about a man's struggle with himself and a past that haunts him. We go on a journey with him through twists and turns that we don't really understand until the end. It's a story that slowly pulls the viewer into it's world. The actors all inhabit their roles wonderfully. The lead actor picks up this girl on the road and we think we know how the journey will end until both leads face themselves and what's in front of them right now. No one can escape their pasts and Director Grey takes the time to tell the story in the old fashion way of film making that touches the heart and celebrates the triumph of love and the human spirit.

Rachel Taylor is outstanding in all her scenes. The camera loves her and we love her back. We long for her longing and feel her frustration.

All the actors are perfectly cast. The location is beautiful.
