The Bridges of Madison County | Clint Eastwood, 1995

A man in love with a married woman stands in the street in the pouring rain, soaked to the skin, looking at her for the last time; a married woman looks back at the man she loves but can't have, also wet from the rain but sheltered in her husband's truck, knowing that when her husband returns she'll never see this man again. This brief love affair will live with them both forever, and perhaps her choice of shelter is a sensible one. But life is more beautiful out in the open, where you don't have to settle for just seeing the rain. You can feel it, too.
