IN LIFE'S DARKEST MOMENTS, CAN LOVE CONQUER ALL? Robby Smith and Rose Parks are two lost souls. Mentally disabled Rooby still lives with his over-protective family and ex-alcoholic Rose is regarded as a 'bad' woman, so Robby's parents react with predictable horror when the two fall in love. But they have failed to gauge the strength and purity of Robby and Rose's feelings for each other- a situation complicated by their secret marriage. As Robby's parents launch a legal battle to reclaim their son, can Ros prove that her bad reputation is far from merited? And can Robby prove that he can be an independent and valued member of society?

Excellent Made for TV movie 5 May 2004
By Lisa - Published on
Format: DVD
This award-winning, made for television drama was based on a true story and follows the love affair of Rose Parks (Kelly McGillis), a divorced woman, and Robby Smith (Treat Williams), a developmentally disabled man. The pair's relationship begins as a friendship, but soon grows into something deeper and causes concern for Robby's family. The tension reaches a climax when Rose and Robby declare their intention to marry, and the family firmly oppose any such plan. This sensitive portrayal of both the romantic relationship and the family relationship provides a solid family drama that speaks to the true nature of love.
I remember this movie being on TV ages ago. I was so mad when I didn't put a tape in my VCR to record it. I was suprised when I found out this movie was to be released on DVD. I cannot wait to watch it again after 12 years.
I am so glad that they are finally releasing some of those made for tv movies on DVD. It's about time!!

An Uncommon Subject For A Romantic Story. 19 July 2005
By rsoonsa - Published on
Format: DVD
Joel Rice, who describes himself as a "social worker/producer" is credited for several interesting films that rub against problems of people having learning difficulties, and in this item made for television, reportedly based upon actual events, the theme is decidedly unusual, a romantic affair absorbing a man with such difficulties and a woman without. Robbie Smith (Treat Williams) is scorned and carelessly harassed by people in his Kansas home town but is loved by his parents with whom he lives, and by his brother. Despite his mental slowness, Robbie has been accepted as merely a local oddity, a status that is capsized when Rose Parks (Kelly McGillis), a divorcee with a sordid past meets him, their comfortable beginning friendship turning into something stronger as the censure of those about them serves to refill their shared desire to be together. The relationship between evidently mismatched lovers is not effectively developed, little but melodrama filling the scenario, a notable scripting weakness being Robbie's plainly non-discriminatory feelings of affection to others while simultaneously being romantically obsessed with Rose, but a strong element of the film is its emphasis upon the struggles of those involved in their dealings with a non-compassionate officialdom. There are no true villains in this piece shot in Ontario with acts of reconcilement amid the principals lacking conviction, as does Williams in general although he works very hard at creating his part, with McGillis earning acting honours for her full-blooded performance as a woman seeking another chance, while other capable turns in an intriguingly cast production come from Steve Railsback as Robbie's protective older brother, Gordon Pinsent playing Rose's father, and Colin Fox as a judgemental doctor who instigates the primary set of problems for the lovelorn pair.

A marriage between unequals that works despite the challenges 14 Aug. 2014
By lonebeaut - Published on
This is one of the best Prime movies I've seen in a while (and I watch a lot of Prime movies). Very touching, very heartwarming, but not in an icky sticky way. And Treat Williams and Kelly McGillis are both fabulous as the two who fall in love even though one is a little slow and the other has a questionable past. It makes you think about what love really is, and if our society is over-protective of mentally challenged individuals and what they can and cannot do. Absolutely recommended.

As intelligent person is capable weight pros and cons of partner or relationship, simpleminded people with head on approach in relationship, enjoy not just intensity of relationship, but stability overcoming storms.
Touching story of two people easily overlooked by “aiming high” ones is beautiful illustration just that.
This is a must see. 27 July 2014
By Stephanie Lynn Moore - Published on
A very gripping tale about just being a little different. I found this to be a true love story. With every emotional roll-a-coaster ride and bump along the way, the heart is what it is and wants what it wants. Deep thought and an open mind drive this emotional bus we call quality of life
