Love Affair (1994) - as "A Year With Kate" nears its conclusion

A YEAR WITH KATE... 2 episodes left

 "A really beautiful look into the careers of one of my favorite actors, but it's made me consider the careers of so many different actors and how the great ones adapt to eras while still staying true to themselves.

Never been a huge fan of this franchise (only saw the first one in theaters), so I have no intentions of seeing Stranger Tides until it comes on Blu-Ray.
