“There are two things I always wanted to believe in but didn’t dare. One is that there was one man, somewhere, who was made just for me. The other is that I just might deserve him.” – Rosalyn Willoughby

Brief Synopsis – After an artist has a dream about his future wife, he decides to seek her out across the country.

My Take on it – This is a film that I knew absolutely nothing about before coming across it during my research for this blogathon.

Brendan Fraser does a nice job playing this very eccentric character and it is quite believable how it all seems to play out.

Joanna Going also is great in her role and the fact that their characters have such great chemistry together helps make this even more plausible.

The film’s message about destiny is great and is helps by the way that the story moves along.

The fact that these characters are so far away from one another both location-wise and personality-wise is dealt with in a very believable way.

The story takes its time developing both of these characters separately and together in order to help make things come across in a much more realistic and genuine fashion.

The fact that the story is et forth via a dream is great since it allows for the viewer to also believe that sometimes a dream may not jyuts be a dream, but be something more powerful and profound at the same time.


MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – The stone crafter story that Fletcher tells to Roz is a local legend about La Ventana de Rosa (the Rose Window), at the Mission San José in San Antonio. (From IMDB)

Rating – Globe Worthy (8/10)
