In 1972, playwright Richard Collier (Christopher Reeve) becomes fascinated by a photo of Elise McKenna (Jane Seymour), a turn-of-the-century stage actress, while staying at the Grand Hotel in Mackinac Island, Michigan. As Richard's obsession grows, he learns from a friend that time travel may actually be possible through hypnosis. Richard travels in time to meet Elise, and the two appear destined to be together. However, Elise's jealous manager (Christopher Plummer) attempts to keep them apart.
I purchased this movie a few years back in a sales bin and I absolutely fell in love with it. The idea of time travel has always fascinated me and this movie gives you a glimpse of a bygone era. The picturesque setting of Mackinac Island, Michigan is breathtaking. The period costumes worn by Elise McKenna were visions for someone like me who adores costume design. A romantic movie that shows us that love knows no distance and the human heart will fight till its last breath to reunite with its soul mate. History comes to life in this charming movie.
