Mary Bryant revisted

I have watched Mary Bryant 5 times now and each time I watch it, I fall a little more in love with Will Bryant.
He had to be the strongest man in the world. He was married to a very strong and determined woman in Mary Bryant and they loved one another with a passion that knew no boundaries. He had to admit that without her tenacity and strength that he did not possess, they were able to survive insurmountable odds to stay alive. The fact that they made it for as long as they did is nearly a miracle. She in turn, never stopped believing in him. To watch him die is heartbreaking but Alex makes his death one of dignity and grace.
Alex, stole the film. He made Will Bryant a memorable character despite Mary being the focus of the film. Wonderful movie, go rent it, better yet go buy it. You will not regret it.
Personally, I think this is the most handsome that I have ever seen Alex. He was beautiful to look at in this film. Well, take a look for yourself. Would I lie to you?

I agree with you Cindy - this is a truly wonderful movie. Alex definitely deserved the nomination he received for his role as Will.
I still have a tough time watching the second half though - I have seen it once and the first have several times.
As an aside, I love his hair in this movie... the curls!!
