REVIEWS

Review by anonymous (posted on 3-Feb-2007)

This movie deeply touched my life as I am a survivor of the extremely unfortunate Oklahoma City Bombing, April 19, 1995. The movie was a depiction of my life starting over after all that I owned had been instantly destroyed and I nearly went with it by a mere five minutes. This was a time when nothing else mattered. What's more the songs, music, and score compiled by Ms. Carole King for me goes beyond just merely being in love again on this earth. The songs in the movie, composed by Ms. King, takes me into a spiritual light and the spiritual commitment I made just a few months ago that I'm on a mission of love for the Almighty God Eternal and it's a love for the last time and for all eternity. If those of you who read this message wish to contct me for more on this, please, please, do so and I would love to share with you some heavy thoughts that the movie, Murphy's Romance, ignited in my life. I close with this request, I would be most pleased to get a CD of the soundtrack from Murphy's Romance as at the end of the movie there are songs listed performed by Ms. Carole King that I would love to hear the words. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE if you would help me. Amen. Sincerely, Michael Hinton Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
