I had never seen Judy Duench in any movie. This movie moved me to tears. I can't pass the blue/purple wild flowers that are blooming right now in Ohio without wanting to cry. When I play the CD, I just have to stop whatever I am doing, and hold back the tears. I will never, ever forget this movie. Maggie Smith was also terrific. As was the young man playing the part of the violinist. Joshua Bell actually played all the violin music. Words cannot describe Joshua Bell performance. I hope that everyone gets to see the movie!! Especially the ones with broken hearts. It is tough to watch without crying, but worth every minute. Thank you for allowing me to vent all my pent up emotions.
