Two love stories unfold simultaneously in "Possession." A pair of modern-day academics chase after evidence of two mid-19th century writers who were not known to have ever met, but had a torrid affair. The interweaving of old and new stories was breathtaking at times.
I watched "Possession" again last last week (6/16/10) for the first time since I saw it in the theater (9/16/02). I thoroughly enjoyed it this time as well. It is a seriously well crafted movie. It's both a romance and a mystery.
