Movie Reviews

Realistic View of Interracial and Cross-Cultural Relations D
Gayle Tiller | San Jose, CA | 04/05/2010
(4 out of 5 stars)

""The Affair" is set during World War II in England. Kerry Fox plays Maggie Leyland, an English, married mother who has a young son. Courtney B. Vance plays Travis Holloway, a single African-American soldier who has never found love. Maggie has been betrayed by her husband and needs someone who can truly love her.

Travis is drawn to Maggie because of her beauty and kindness. Maggie and Travis slowly fall in love. Yet, their love is not equal. Travis is totally dedicated to Maggie. She doesn't want to give up her pristine life with her husband and son. This is where the tragedy begins.

The ending of the film was totally depressing. My eyes swelled with tears when I watched the last part of the film. However, I won't spoil the film by revealing its ending. If you are looking for a realistic view of life that examines interracial relations and cross-cultural relations during World War II, you should watch "The Affair.""
