Stealing Home 1988
I absolutely LOVE this movie! It’s ONE of my all-time favorites!
Not just because it’s from the 80’s (I’m an 80’s fan 🙂 ) but because it has a heartwarming love story. Jodi Foster is definitely the perfect Katie Chandler and William McNamara who played the young Billy Wyatt is too handsome for words. Plus, the theme song is too beautiful. Really, I could watch this movie over and over again. For those who have not yet seen this movie, I highly recommend you to watch it. It only takes a couple of hours to download. 😉 Just to give you an idea, below is a short summary of the movie (but you must still see the movie itself to know exactly how wonderful the story goes. 🙂
Billy Wyatt is a middle aged man who lives in a motel with a cocktail waitress. One day, he receives a call from his mother who tells him Katie Chandler, who is Billy’s childhood friend and his first love, committed suicide and left a will saying Billy is to take responsibility for her ashes. When he returns to his hometown to fulfill his duty with Katie’s ashes, happy and sad memories of his childhood all came back. He began to recall those memorable times with his late father whom he shared such great passion for baseball, his adventures into manhood with his bestfriend Alan and mostly the times he spent with Katie. At first Billy was totally clueless as to what to do with Katie’s ashes, but in the end he finds the answer when he drifts back in time to that place where Katie made her wish. It was Katie who influenced Billy to break free even back in those days when he was just 10 and she was 16. And again in the end, it was still Katie who brought him back home reminding him of his love for baseball. Billy, who’ve had a part of him lost for several years finally found its missing piece and his life back.
