From novelist Patrick Gale, this is a tender, powerful film sure to spark conversation about outdated attitudes and equal rights. Two love stories set 60 years apart are linked by a secret that echoes through generations, from a forbidden relationship impossible during WWII, contrasted with a present-day romance that is nearly derailed by the 1940s tale with which it is deeply intertwined.

This is one of the Most beautiful & gently told stories of Love between 2 men, 60 years apart, anchored by 1 broken heart, a cottage, a hidden painting & an unmailed love note that has waited 60 years to be read & understood by 2 men in love. It doesn't lecture or dictate, it provides a lense into 2 could-be couples & what stands in their way. It allows you heart to help understand the life of gay men in the 1940s vs Present Day - have things changed enough?
Perhps, it helped that i am a huge fan of Oliver Jackson-Cohen (Michael) & now also a fan of Julian Morris (Adam). Michael & Adam never met, they are anchored by Vanessa Redgrave (Flora), Michael's wife & Adam's grandmother. Michael & Adam are similar looking & sounding, which helped the continuity of the story.
Simply put, the 1st story can be summed up with: How do you make a circle out of a triangle?
Simply put, the 2nd story can be summed up with: "she's never invited confidences" (heartbreaking).
The very, very end, in the last 2 minutes, the story is tied together, by saying "We just couldn't, why can't you?"
Watch this & then buy the blueray & have loved ones watch it.
This is a very intriguing story, but it could have been so much better.
