365 Movies: The Enchanted Cottage Review

The Enchanted Cottage stars Dorothy McGuire, Robert Young, Herbert Marshall, and Mildred Natwick in this 1945 film. Engaged to be married, Oliver Bradford(Young) and his fiancee Beatrice(Hillary Brooke) plan to stay at an adorable little cottage on their honeymoon. Before they even marry, Oliver is set and ready to fight in the war, leaving Beatrice alone. At the cottage, is a homely looking maid named Laura(McGuire) who falls for Oliver, the minute she sees him. When Oliver does return back, he doesn't go to his fiancee, but to the little cottage, he found such comfort in. With time, Oliver finds peace and happiness with himself, and he soon grows to love Laura. This is such a dreamy and spectacular romance film, and it leaves you in awe from the very start of the film. As much as I don't want to use this word, the film was very enchanting and sweet. The first time, I saw this movie, I was in tears. This film has a special place in my heart and it's such a wonderfully romantic film.
