Don Juan DeMarco (1995) [PG-13] *****

This movie is for every woman who knows that somewhere out there is a man who could truly love her for her perfect inner beauty, and for every man who feels he could be that lover. Johnny Depp is magnificent as Don Juan DeMarco, the greatest lover the world has ever known. And Marlon Brando is superb as his friend and confidant Don Octavio DeFlores.

The music is inspiring, including Bryan AdamsHave You Ever Really Loved A Woman? And the screenwriting is sublime, including Don Juan's thought-provoking speech to Don Octavio: There are only four questions of value in life: What is sacred? Of what is the spirit made? What is worth living for, and what is worth dying for? The answer to each is the same... only Love.

Watch this wonderful film with someone you love.
