Memorable Movie Proposal (6)
When a series of boxes just doesn’t make the cut, a string may just do the trick.
In Stepmom, Luke (Ed Harris) wakes up Isabel (Julia Roberts) one morning with a kiss and an empty ring box. Declaring his love and commitment he says, “When two people love each other, commit to each other, it has to be an act of will—a decision…You have to hang on to that decision and the choice to love each other even if it’s only by a thread. I let that thread break once, this time I won’t.” He ties a string to her finger and slides the diamond ring in place. Now that’s a neat trick.
