Somewhere In Time: My Favorite Movie! I Am An Avid Fan! I Know Every Little Bit Of Minutia About This Cult Classic. Highly Recommended...

I am so elated to announce my all time favorite movie "Somewhere in Time" will be airing on HBO at 12:40am!!! This movie has not been on cable for a very long time. I have it on DVD and can watch it anytime. But I'm happy for those who will get to watch it for the first time. :)

This is one of my favorite scenes from this movie, "Somewhere In Time". This movie was not a big hit when it was first released. In fact, it was a flop. But years later, those who were deeply touched by this movie turned it into a cult movie and now have a huge following. Avid fans meet annually at The Grand Hotel in Mackinac Island, Michigan where this movie was filmed. The soundtrack is AMAZING too! I still want to cry when I hear Rhapsody by Rachmaninov. In this scene one of the main characters named Elise Mckenna has re-written the entire first scene from the play she is acting in. She breaks from the original script and gives a heartfelt message.

"The man of my dreams is almost faded now. The one I have created in my mind. The sort of man each woman dreams of in the deepest and most secret reaches of her heart. I can almost see him now before me. What would I say to him if he were really here? Forgive me. I've never known this feeling, I've lived without it all my life. Is it any wonder, then, I failed to recognize you? You've brought it to me for the first time. Is there any way that - that I can tell you how my life has changed? Any way at all to let you know what sweetness you have given me? There is so much to say. I can't find the words, except for these... I love you. And that's what I'd say to him if he were really here."

I'll be watching this movie tonight for the gazillionth time crying my eye's out. It's been a while. But after listening to this beautiful music, I've been inspired to watch it again. :) ♥ I love the scene when they meet for the first time and she says to him "Is it you?". ♥ An absolute MUST WATCH if you haven't seen this masterpiece. ♥ SUBLIME!
