I can't help but love this movie. When watching this movie, I felt as if I was right inside with the people and it was real life. All the emotions that Kevin's character goes through shows this sensitive side of him that is not always shown in his movies. I cried for his loss and cheered him on in finding another person to understand and love him for who he is. The depth of this film made me want to be in love and to share that experience with someone.
A Classic Story Of Love (by Darbe369)
This movie is a classic. For anyone who has any real feelings and tragically lost the love of their life, they'll be able to relate to this movie. Excellent story line, a real tear jerker, but a love story just the same. It will continually hold your interest the entire time, and it's over before you know it, even though it is 2-1/2 hours long---it doesn't drag on like a lot of movies do. Paul Newman, Kevin Costner, and Robin Wright Penn are all perfect in their respective roles. It's a story to show there can be life after a love is lost. One of my Top 10 favorite movies of <more>
ALL time! Kevin Costner says it best near the end---when he says a person is VERY luck to find true love once in their lifetime, but to find it twice is a true miracle! my Top 10 movies of ALL time! A real must see! You won't be disappointed!
At first I thought it would be a predictable movie as it moved along. The ending was sad and not expected. When Theresa got the phone call at her meeting, it was a tragic message. It was even more tragic when she read the message in the bottle at the end. I got caught up in the sadness and tragic shift in what might have been good live for both of them, had Garret made a choice to be with her after she came to see the boat launch. I think the acting and direction was outstanding. Kevin handled his role magnificently and Paul was also outstanding. This is one of the first movies I've seen <more>
Robin in and she is indeed a great actress. I watch a lot of movies and am not much of a critic. But she turned in an Academy performance. Very nice musical score. I think overall, this movie deserves a much higher rating than the 4 or 5 rating on IMDb.
it is just an unusual story, well played and shot. Paul Newman is great (by gpratzer)
This movie has all the ingredients you need on a Sunday afternoon--it is happy and sad, funny and melancholic, optimistic but realistic, expected but unexpected, just what life is all about. Photography is just breathtaking, and oh, Chicago looks fantastic. There are some witty lines. Paul Newman is doing a great little role--Oscar? MUST SEE!
9 out of 10... Loved it! (by melloheart)
I really enjoyed the peacefulness of the surroundings. The beautiful foggy mornings near the ocean is an all natural calmer. Just overall a wonderful movie. Very moving. Each of us Have loved or will have loved so deeply as to make our very souls leap into unfathomable joy. This movie grabs hold of the heart of the viewer and keeps you intrigued from the beginning to the end. It engages the inner self to want to reach out, take hold of life and love with the clarity to which we all want to be loved. It reminds us when you love, let it be always unconditional. Let it be forever. A well written <more>
This is the movie that proves that most critics don't know what they're doing. The critics shed their sentimentalism sometime in the mid-1960's, so how could they know or care?One must have a heart to enjoy "Message in a Bottle". It's a treasure--beautiful, poignant, tragic. The cast is wonderful, and if you don't cry at the ending, you aren't human which most critics apparently aren't .
"Choose between yesterday and tomorrow. Pick one. Stick with it." (by Nazi_Fighter_David)
While on vacation, a single mother identified as Theresa discovers a 'message in a bottle' on the shore that has moving honest words of love addressed to a woman named Catherine The trail leads her to a sailboat builder named Garrett and also to his father, Dodge in a small North Carolina coastal town It turns out that Catherine is Garret's deceased wife, and the intriguing letters were written, two years earlier, after her decease Some people find the one true love of their lives, if they're fortunate enough Luis Mandoki's film, in part, turns out to be a choice <more>
about what occurs when a person finds that right kind of love, then when he is faced with the impossible, and then when he is given the right to continue with his life and is brave enough to love again no matter how unpleasant his grief is As a reclusive widower, Garret was still in deep pain, and entirely devoted to Catherine's memory He had hard time letting go of the past Catherine was dead but not forgotten and was simply everywhere As a sailor Costner didn't inherit the charm of Newman He was drawn to Penn by her smile, her beauty, even her mistakes Robin Wright Penn was beautiful, delicate and sweet as Theresa She soon insinuates her way into Garret's life Her expectations were always too high Since the beginning, she just had to meet the person that wrote those letters Her life was changed by them Eventually when she met Garret that morning, she accepted, without hesitation, to step aboard Paul Newman as Dodge liked Theresa instantly He saw in her the key to his son's emotional recovery With a very nice music, and a stunning coastal photographyalso the ocean scenes are wonderfully taken"Message in a Bottle" is definitely a weepy melodrama and a must see for those who believe, or don't, in love
Very well-done love story, without the convenient "happily ever after" ending. (by TxMike)
I generally like Kevin Costner movies, but had only moderate expectations for this one. But after seeing it, I think it is one of the best "love stories" I have seen. The pace of the movie, and the dialog, are not rushed, some may even say leisurely. But that is a welcome change from many of today's fast action, cut-to-the-chase movies which neglect character development.This movie developed characters. I found myself really caring for all of them. The dialog between Costner's and Newman's characters, son and father, is very natural and believable. The meeting and <more>
getting to know one another by Penn's and Costner's characters is also very natural and believable.This movie could have taken the easy way out, with a neatly tied together ending, everyone living happily ever after. Instead it takes an unexpected turn but "love" is still the driving force, a strong message about love, relationships, and living each day for what it is worth.Finally, the scenery and photography are wonderful. Definitely one of the better "modern" movies I have seen. SPOILERS: He finishes his boat, named for his deceased wife, but encounters a family having difficulty on their boat during a big storm. He rescues the dad and small daughter but both he and the wife perish when he has to dive in to try to save her. Update 2008: I saw it again after over 8 years, and my opinion has remained the same. A somewhat underrated movie.Update 2017: I watched it again after 9 more years and found it rather fresh.
Allow yourself to enjoy the pace of the ocean in this romance. (by steinj)
The pace is set from the opening scene: the ocean with its consistent but gentle force splashing against the shore. `Message in a Bottle' follows this leisurely pace; it is not in a real hurry to give up all its secrets, but like the ocean, will surrender all in good time. So relax, and allow yourself to enjoy!Paul Newman Dodge Blake and Kevin Costner Garrett Blake both deliver strong performances as father and son, initially content, though not really happy in their current existence. Both have lost their love, for one reason or another, and are each other's companion and <more>
support. Newman gets the fun punch lines, Costner gets the woman. `If I were about 150 years younger' starts one of Newman's lines it must be different for him not to play the leading role. Costner seems right at home playing a ship-building sailor who is lost because of his lost love.Robin Wright Theresa Osborne is equally strong, playing an independent and patient reporter, who follows her heart, and decides to find the author of the love letters from the ocean. She gives Garrett distance gently when he needs it, yet pushes back equally hard when she needs to.Much of the acting relied not so much on the delivery of lines, as on the body language, on looks, on the strained silence between a couple who is unsure of each other, often unsure of themselves, yet strongly attracted to each other.Both Garrett and Theresa seem to struggle at conversation, both uncertain of how to discover each other, yet each finding an attraction they can't seem to deny. Garrett is hanging on to the love he still feels for his wife, who died too early. Theresa is still recovering from a divorce, and the busy life of a single parent. Neither is sure they can be open to a new relationship, nor are they ready to say goodbye to something that is starting to feel so right.The photography of the sailboats on the ocean were enough to bring out the romantic in me. What could be a more peaceful setting than a sailboat anchored privately in a small cove of the ocean in the Outer Banks?. We're given just enough peek into the unfolding world of a couple discovering love, without it feeling like an intrusion.To talk more of the ups and downs would give away too many of the secrets that only the theatre, the bookstore, or the ocean will release.
