10stars for her wedding day dress
12 April 2019 | by MzPrudishSee all my reviews

Can't believe I found a classic movie gem in the imdb 'freedive' section (classic because this movie is nearly 20 years old-hmm how time flies)! Never heard of this film probably because I'm American but it feels like a Lifetime Movie Network (LMN cable channel) tv movie. If you like over hyped, star-power films, then it' probably not your 'cuppa' tea. :D A simple beginning - but captures your attention with a twist of the unpredictable parts of life. She's a single lady enjoying life and dances herself into a love affair turned marriage with a cute soldier. Fast life for them. As you know-the old saying: if life gives us lemons we make lemonade. Movie explores what happened after these usually over-romanticized war marriages. Yet, I'm sure (if you consider the idea of marrying somebody you only knew for a few weeks) your mind concocts a sordid variety of possibilities: bad, good or worse.
