FOREVER, FOR ALWAYS, FOR LOVE
Serious drama with a touch of humor aptly describes Forever, for Always, for Love (4.5), Kim Shaw's exceptional story of what happens when love's candle is allowed to burn low. Seth and Josette Crawford have lived together for more than 20 years. When their youngest leaves for college, Josette feels lost. For so long she's seen herself only as a mom, and she realizes she's lost herself, and maybe her husband. Seth still loves his wife and has some definite thoughts on how things should go but doesn't share them with Josette. A couple of crises find Josette back in her mother's kitchen, receiving the best advice possible -- "mother wit" with a definite twist! Getting home, physically, mentally and as a couple, comes after much soul-searching.
