Movie Reviews

Truth in loving
Christne Heinsohn | Elmdale, KS United States | 11/20/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"We watched a really good movie tonight titled A Strange Affair starring
Judith Light and Jay Thomas. It was a very powerful poly film based of
real events. Judith's character is that of a wife who is very unhappy in
her marriage to Jay Thomas's character because his is a gambler and a
philanderer. When he steals the money that she has set aside to start her
own business, that's the end for her and she leaves him. The night she
leaves, he has a stroke, her college-aged children get ahold of her and she
returns. She commits to caring for him. She takes her car in for repairs
and meets Art. A friendship develops between she and Art. The friendship turns to love.
Eventually the three setup housekeepping.

The above description makes it sound easy. It's not. The movie deals with
the conflicts of obligation, social stigma, and loving. It clearly shines
a light on the positive side of loving more than one, but also shows the
work and devotion it takes to enrich such relationships.

I was in tears by the end of the movie. I felt inspired by the characters,
even Jay Thomas's (difficult as he was a real scumbag in the beginning).
Personal growth occurred in them all. I strongly reccommend this made for
TV movie.
Wonderful "I Can Change" video!

"This is the most delightful movie. Truthful, fast-moving, while also taking the time to establish that time is passing. Things are not occuring in the light speed they use for relationships in hollywood.I highly recommend this, though for families, you need to know that there is some sexual content, and a wee bit of language."
