Powerfully moving, intimate view of a disabled couple's beginnings
26 October 2017 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

The filmmaker's ability to take such intimate, personal scenes and tell such a powerful story truly honors these two people. If you are empathetic with those who are challenged and struggle to find meaningful relationships I think it would be hard to not be quickly drawn in to this story. Dina has had significant life experience - Scott's world has been much more limited. But his love of Dina and his wish to succeed in this marriage won me over repeatedly. Dina was surprising in her ability to articulate what she needed from Scott. His appreciation of Dina's past said so much about his character. Dina's accident was revealed in such a stark and stunning manner. This is not a commercial film but I hope it continues to find an audience. This is the most moving film I've seen in decades.
