Very sweet story. The writing and acting are well done. It is a period piece that is set during the 1940s.
This movie shows good examples of love and kindness and how it not only helps others but ourselves also.
This is a heartwarming story of forgiveness and how real love can develop slowly, through time and charity. It shows how jumping into intimate relationships prematurely has it’s consequences. It also shows us how we need to treat others, even when they’ve made rash decisions.
Oh, how we love this one. It’s such a soft, dream-like movie to me. Throughout the movie, Olivia has a hard time forgiving herself for an “oops” previous to her marriage. The movie really shows how forgiving oneself can free you and loved ones around you, therefore allowing yourself to love and be loved. So good for all ages!
