I love this charming and endearing movie
Verified purchase
I love this charming and endearing movie, with fine acting and so much heart. I had recorded the movie from TV in 1994 with most commercials successfully edited. Recently, I dubbed my tape to DVD, but decided I wanted the movie without any commercials—and I wanted better picture quality. When I saw the movie available from Amazon, I was thrilled and made my purchase. The DVD I received was SO bad, it didn't come close to the picture quality that I recorded on videotape 20 years ago! I returned the DVD for a refund.

I imagine there are many women who have had such marriages... even today. May all find such happiness. Thank you for a great film.

Sweet story, on the light side. Enjoyed the ending for its cleverness. Probably wouldn't watch twice but once was good.

It really works!

Received my Root Slayer today and went out to use it and I am impressed with how good it works! Digging is so much easier in our clay soil and was able to dig out a small stump in no time! I’m 73 yo and not much strength but with this shovel I can do it much easier than before!

Matters of the heart!

Enjoyed this movie once it picked up the pace! Loved the fact that she discovered what true love and friendship feel like and also that life can be full of excitement and adventure at any stage!

Following Her Heart +CD Windchimes
Verified purchase
I found this movie very inspiring. It is great seeing a Woman (Ann-Margret) who came out of a very unhappy marriage with a VERY controlling husband, and follows her heart. Like a catepillar opening up to a beautiful singing butterfly. Ann-Margret does a beautiful, sensitive performance. This movie will leave you with a smile!

Made In Nashville, TN

Love this movie. In fact, I was in it. This movie was made in Nashville, TN, and I was an extra in several scenes. Ann-Margret is a beautiful and talented actress and the supporting cast was also great. Will always be a movie close to my heart.

It was all that I anticipated and more
Verified purchase
I saw the beginning of this movie in 2003, while visiting my sister in Michigan. It was her birthday and we had to leave to make dinner reservations. My sister passed away in 2004 and I had searched for the movie to see the end. I finally found it before the Christmas holiday and ordered it. I invited my other sisters (3, who were also in Michigan when I saw this movie) to finish watching the end with me. We all cried. It was wonderful!!! I was inspired to follow my dream, no matter what others say!!! This is a wonderful movie to see for women who need to be encouraged!!!
