The story is a great tribute to those who served in WWII, and to those left behind that rallied together to support the troops. It is an emotional journey as you follow Caroline's memories from "love at first sight" to the last sight of her love. Betty White is incredible and believable as the woman who had faced life with courage in spite of her suffering. The entire cast does justice to this moving and inspiring story. It is family friendly, though the scene of some of the war action near the end of the movie may be too intense for small children.
Hallmark website than on Amazon. If you like the Notebook, you will love this movie! Buy it, own it, watch it, treasure it! Enjoy but don't forget the tissues!
I had heard about the film when it was on CBS; but I could never have guessed just how good. This is the first review I have ever written; I am not very good at it.
During the Second World War my wife and I were still in public school and both of us recall the various activities that involved the civilian population during that time. The music was all very familiar as were the references to collecting scrap metal for the war effort, the victory gardens that almost everyone in our neighborhood had, and the flags with stars draped in the windows showing the number of family members away in the armed forces.
All of this is firmly engraved in my memory and this movie brought them back with force as this tender love story was told. The settings, the ambience, the music are all effectively done to give the viewer a small glimpse of life in the 1940's.
The story focuses on a WW II widow who had a special method for remembering her missing husband; this comes to the attention of a TV station who decides to feature her in a TV program. The widow is marvelously played by Betty White who brings a tender and touching conviction to the role. The young TV reporter, played by the lovely Jennifer Love Hewitt, is at first skeptical of the assignment but begins to develop a loving concern for the elderly widow and decides to carry the assignment on to its conclusion.
The movie switches from the contemporary story to the WW II romance with a series of flashbacks. It is these flashbacks that so effectively convey the feelings of the WW II era.Read more ›
