Gina is proud to present another brilliant, yet overlooked film: Truly Madly Deeply (1990)

What happens when the love of your life comes back after dying? Truly Madly Deeply is one of those truly beautiful movies you want to see over and over again. Juliet Stevenson, as Nina, plays one of the most authentic female leads created: she bawls full-out, complete with fluids, she's passive aggressive, irritable, and yet very loveable and likeable. Likewise, Alan Rickman's character, Jamie, is peevish and self-centered which makes him authentic and unique and very relatable.
