Somewhere in Time
Somebody Pass Terry A Hanky

Filmed on the beautiful (and frozen in time) Mackinac Island in Northern Michigan, this moody, romantic tale of a playwright who longs for a mysterious woman (Jane Seymour) and travels back in time to find her will not be for all tastes. It is slightly dated, but incredibly sweet and beautiful. Reeves shows what a handsome and gifted actor he was, and Seymour melts your heart with her wonderfully genuine performance. This is a project made purely out of love and the DVD fortunately has enough extra material to give the viewer some interesting insight behind the passion for this material, including interviews with a now wheelchair-bound Reeves, making the material that much harder to watch. A true sentimental journey, this film must be seen by anyone with an open mind and heart. A very literate and thoughtful film.
