Turn off your devices and be swept away by real emotion!
16 November 2016 | by juliaaldenwongSee all my reviews

I reluctantly attended a viewing of this film since I was not interested in another "escape to find myself" woman's story. I was blown away by how the film touched me -- so much more so than the books which I found irrelevant to my life. Although this movie is based on a woman's story, what impressed me the most was the protagonist's husband and his story. His courage, his honesty and his humor had me in tears. The message that relationships of all sorts can flourish over time, even after hurtful challenges is a good one for all audience members, especially for American's now. Forgiveness brings growth. Even if the story-line doesn't grab you, the acting is superb... there are some stunning moments even without words that evoke so much response from the audience because of the acting. The music and cinematography will heal hearts. Turn off your devices, go see "A Year by the Sea" and be swept away by real emotion.
