the yellow handkerchief

Friday Flick:  The Yellow Handkerchief (2008)

A well put together, understated movie of human connection and healing with an outstanding performance by William Hurt matched by the formidable Maria Bello, plus Kristen Stewart and Eddie Redmayne.  This love story flows strong,  steady and ominous as the swampy Louisiana current it's set in.  The Yellow Handkerchief, symbolic of hope, while dingy and worn is still clearly held by the knot of its fabric.
