“ It’s horrifying how much you can hate yourself for being low and weak and he couldn’t save me from that. So I turned it on him; I tried to empty it onto him. But there was always more, you know. When he tried to help I told him that he made me feel small and worthless. But nobody makes us feel that, we do that for ourselves. I shut him out because I knew if he ever really saw who I was inside, that he wouldn’t love me. And we’re separated now, he’s moved away, and it was so hard not to beg him to stay. And I don’t know if I’m going to get a second chance but I have to believe. That I deserve one. Because we all do. ”
—When A Man Loves A Woman (1994)
I can’t believe there was no disclaimer whatsoever on the dvd case stating that this movie will make you lose it. After watching it I checked myself out in the mirror an boy was I a mess with the tear stains and snot dripping from my nose. Ack.
It’s the first time I’ve seen Andy Garcia play this kind of role cause he’s always sort of the bad guy or connected to the mafia. Being the patient and loving husband and the affectionate dad did him good. I felt for him cause his wife (Meg Ryan) was a bitch in the movie.
