This film held my interest in the very beginning, going back to the WWII years and a guy named Aidan Quinn dressed in an Army Uniform and starting out with his war bride, Marcia Gay Harden. They were very much in love and their favorite song was, 'See You In My Dreams', which is played through out the entire film. The sweet and in love couple have a son who the father loves very dearly and wants him to achieve all the best things that life has to offer. Lots of drinking goes on and words are said and there is the possibility that a wife is cheating on her husband. The ending of the picture is what life is all about and the prices we pay for the lives we LIVE!
