I lost my husband suddenly about 2 years ago. I first watched this movie about 10 years ago and I enjoyed it. Then, I watched it last night again. This time, it was much more personal to me, and I still enjoyed it,only in a different way. The relationship between Holly Hunter and Richard Dreyfuss was portrayed wonderfully. The selfishness he felt when seeing her and Ted together for the first time was so very honest and painful. The pain she feels at moving on with her life, the love and concern John Goodman shows her, the uncertainty of her future and the way she will handle it kept me on the edge of my seat. The emotions were so real and many of them were the same ones I have felt over the past 2 years. The scene where Dorinda dances alone yet with Pete simply sent me to the tissues. When she is putting out that last fire, and is contemplating the rest of her life alone hit home as well. I cried for almost the entire movie this time. The actors portrayed their characters as real as can be, and I truly felt their pain and confusion. I read the book years ago and I feel that this is one of the few times the movie is as good as the book. This time after watching it, I actually was able to find a little peace in my life situation. If you have ever suffered a major loss in your life, I wholeheartedly recommend this movie- even if you haven't, the acting, the script and the movie as a whole gets a 9.0 in my book. Keep a box of kleenex nearby.

If you have ever had a loss, this is the one for you!Reviewed byLISAVote: 5/10
I'll just be honest here --- when I originally saw Always at the cinema in 1989, it was just a few months after my big brother passed away prematurely at the age of forty, and I'm not at all afraid to say that I cried like a baby. Like so many Americans, I have watched far too many films that i have taken to heart, but you know, Always is probably one of the final American films to ever really explore and display such deep human issues as unconditional love, mortality, and what a hero really is -- and isn't. It may be mushy, romantic, and a bit flawed, but I am proud that Spielberg made this bitter-sweet film -- I just saw it again and, if anything, it comes across as even more humane and honest in today's America of aggression, greed, and "relative" truth. If you've ever really, honestly, been so in love and committed to someone that you were willing to unconditionally put their needs before you own, or if you've ever lost anyone who meant the world to you, check it out. It changed my life when I first saw it because it made consider death in a new light... and it is about to totally change my life again as I have decided to live every moment for the rest of it as honest and decent and true to myself as possible --something that few of us today are willing to admit is lacking in our lives.
It has been a while since I have seen this 'Always.' The years, I should say, have done this film justice. A noted cinephile, I know when to eat my words, and this is one is for the books. Sincere. Honest. Touching. Obviously sparked with a late-eighties, Spielbergian hyper-real, cinematic extensions and flair, these elements do not bog the film downs as, say, with '1941' or 'The Color Purple.' And why should we expect modern filmmakers to be like those of the forties or fifties? Modern filmmakers are just that -- modern. Holly Hunter is a walking dream and she has talent in droves. I have long had a crush on her and her funny mouth. She is simply enchanting and steals the show. Goodman, for once, is kept under control. Dreyfuss, with the thankless role of revisiting his past and commenting on the future, is the weakest link but only just. Sumptuously photographed by deftly edited, this story of unrequited love is as universal as mothers and babies. If it doesn't bring tears to your eyes, shame on you. The best advice to view this film is to forget it is a Spielberg film. Enjoy it for the love story that it is and sink into its voluptuous and charged charm. We should all hope we become angels in the mist, able to return to Earth to right all the wrongs of the world. This may be one Spielberg's most romantic films, next to A.I., which is a supremely magnificent film and, also, equally dismissed when it first arrived on the scene. I urge all to give this film a second chance.
