a real tear-jerker but an uplifting film,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: When a Man Loves a Woman [DVD]  (DVD)
Wonderful performances from Meg Ryan, Andy Garcia and Tina Majorino who plays the elder child. Furthermore, the music adds so much to the story and the overall enjoyment of what could be construed as a potentially depressing subject. Much of the music is fairly well known but Ricky Lee Jones is less mainstream and I just love 'Stewart's Coat' which plays over the closing credits of the film. This is a good enough reason to purchase the DVD in order to have an undisturbed viewing of the whole film. Why do most Network TV managers allow their staff to ruin the end of so many good films?
There are numerous emotional highlights in this film, with the climax being Meg Ryan's emotive acceptance of her situation at her AA Group. OK - the emotional drama is milked a little but this does not detract from the viewers overall enjoyment of the film and the powerful intensity of their relationship.
Make no mistake this is a very emotional but uplifting film and one that you will enjoy again and again. I don't think Meg Ryan has ever been this good. If you haven't seen it then there is much to enjoy.
