It only took me 8 years to find it but I am glad I did.

I watched an amazing movie today that I wanted to share here.

It is called Possession made in 2002.

It stars Gweneth Paltrow, Aaron Eckhart, Jeremy Northam and Jennifer Ehle

Roland Michell is an American scholar in London there  to study the great Randolph Henry Ash. Ash is known for the poems he dedicated to his wife, and is the subject of a major exhibition. Maud Bailey is a brilliant, by-the-book academic, researching the life and work of the lesser-known Victorian poet Christabel LaMotte. As the history books tell it, La Motte met Ash briefly at a dinner, and they never encountered each other again. When Maud and Roland discover love letters that appear to link the two poets as secret lovers, they follow a trail of clues across England.

You know those kind of movies where you feel as if you are part of it.  I was in awe of a movie that was so well done.  I highly recommend this and/or the book to anyone that may come across it.
