| Not very romantic
Anyone want to hear Paul Muni talk in a British accent? Those of you who raised your hand, go out and rent the romantic drama We Are Not Alone. He's never usually the romantic lead, so I was very excited to see this movie. As it turned out, the romantic portion of the story was very brief, but it was still entertaining.

Doctor Paul and his wife, Flora Robson, have different parenting approaches about their slightly difficult son, Raymond Severn. Flora takes a stern hand and locks him in a dark room when he gets scared and emotional; Paul cuddles him and gives him loving support. Then, when Paul hires a nanny, Jane Bryan, Flora feels resentful. Jane is a former patient, and she seems to easily attract the love of both Paul and Raymond.

You can rent this movie if you want to, but don't expect Gone With the Wind. It's not the most romantic movie in the world, and although it's rather sad, it doesn't leave you with a very good feeling. Just to give you a clue, when Jane complains to Paul that they're being punished for something they haven't done, Paul says, "We are not alone." Have another movie handy for a double-feature or make this a matinee.
