The first time I saw the movie Somewhere In Time I was mesmerized by everything in it. The whole concept that you could will yourself through self-hypnosis to a previous time was something I had never considered. The beautiful musical score gave me a newfound appreciation for the compositions of Rachmaninoff. I can close my eyes and still hear the beautiful strains of “Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini.”

The movie was filmed at the beautiful Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island. The main characters are perfectly played by Jane Seymour and Christopher Reeve. Christopher Plummer is delightfully evil as the manager of young Elise McKenna. As hard as he tries to keep the young couple apart, his attempts would be futile.

Although many may consider this a chick flick, I find it interesting that it is told from the man's point of view. It is his journey to love. Having Satalite tv has allowed me to enjoy this movie many times over the years. We all can use a little love in our lives and this movie will whisk you away to a time long gone by when romance was sweet.
