I can't believe there is a romance movie I hadn't heard of. It's based on the book by Penelope Williamson, which I haven't read. My coworker was right. A great movie. Sort of an "Angel and the Badman" with John Wayne and probably similar to "Witness", which I haven't seen.
Naomi Watts is an Amish/Quaker type of woman whose husband is murdered by the evil cattleman. Tim Daly is a wounded gunfighter that stumbles onto her farm and she takes him in. Of course, they fall in love and you know the relationship is impossible as they struggle with her religion and distaste of violence and his urge to protect the woman and child he has come to love.
Includes themes of good vs. evil, revenge and redemption. If you get a chance, catch the movie on tv or rent it. Just bring your tissues.
Any romance movies you'd recommend?
