    At the core its a romance story about true love overcoming all obstacles. In spite of that it actually came out a good movie. Not great, but better than average, solid 4/5 star movie.

    It was a great movie. Very good acting and the story was well written. I\'ve seen it at least 7 times on cable.

    Surprisingly good plot, yet acting falls short.
