Great Performances and an amazing cast. timeless story with so much relevance.
Beautiful story and charming characters!
This movie puts you in the shoes of Carrie Watts and cleverly lets you know what she thinking. Something I noticed that seemed like a really nice touch was that in the Watts' bedroom there is portrait of Abraham Lincoln!
