A Great One

1998






OH, PEOPLE...
if you haven't seen it, PLEASE DO...







Such an emotional movie, it had me crying thru most of it....
and laughing the rest of the time.



BLUE MONDAY

A very kind and sweet blogger left this informative comment I want to share:
 ***
It's one of my favorite movies, though I usually have a few tears during it :-) Gena Rowlands was fabulous! The house (and setting of the movie) is in Smithville, TX, east of Austin and in a lovely part of the state. Here's a link to some photos of the house: http://hookedonhouses.net/2010/05/02/hope-floats-birdees-house-in-small-town-texas/
Thanks, Patty.
I want that house !!

  9. We seldom go to the movies, but I caught this one on TV a few years ago. I positively loved the little girl who played her daughter. And yes, I cried.

  14. BJ, If this is that movie where the little girl thinks she is going with her father and he drives off.....that tears my heart out. I cry every time I see it ...it actually hurts me . It is a good movie with lots of love. xoxo,Susie

  20. It is a great movie, bj...it's been a while but yes, it was really good. I love Harry Connick, Jr...saw a really good movie on the Hallmark Channel with him and a few old country singers the other night...Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson (he's in bad shape)...anyway was called "Angel's SIng" and it was pretty good!
