"The best romance since Gone With The Wind."
-Pat Collins, WWOR-TV
People remember Jack Sommersby. They know him as a bitter, loutish man. But when Jack returns home after the Civil War, he's tender, caring and resourceful. Has the war changed him...or is the man calling himself Jack Sommersby an impostor?
Richard Gere and two-time Academy Award winner Jodie Foster are a match for the ages in this period romance rich in mystery, detail and splendid performances. They portray Jack and Laurel Sommersby, whose love grows as suspicion about Jack mounts. If he isn't the man she married, Laurel knows he is the man she always wanted. But an ultimate test of their love and Jack's identity awaits. Jack must stand trial for his life and the outcome make one thing sure: you'll remember Sommersby.
A really good film that addresses the themes of love, honor, betrayal, and redemption. Definitely worth watching.
Rated PG-13 (MPAA)
