I can't watch it because there is no closed caption for the hearing impaired. Oh well I guess, I should have not assumed there would be.

I have always loved this movie. How can you not love a movie with Sean Connery, Angelina Jolie, Jillian Anderson AND Ryan Phillipe in it

5.0 out of 5 stars IT`S A MUST ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS July 19 2004
.....and the screenplay is wonderful as are the actors. There are no fancy camera-angles or MTV editing of high speed(compared to Moulin Rouge and William Shakespeare`s Romeo+Juliet - classics in their own right), but the camera let the protagonists do their jobs and they do it admirably... Not that every character is of importance; I prefer Connery, Rowlands, Jolie and Philippe; but we all have our favorites... It`s a movie that few people would find dull, boring or just bad.... It`s a low-key masterpiece:-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great cast, unique movie June 21 2004
Not many people have heard of this movie, much less seen it, which is odd condsidering the number of well-known actors it stars. A few famous faces are Sean Connery, Dennis Quaid, Angelina Jolie, Gillian Anderson, and Madeline Stowe. The movie centers around several romantic relationships that you know are interconneted, but don't find out how until the end. If you're looking for romance, drama, and don't mind some tears, I would highly recommend this movie. It's become one of my all-time favorites!

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of heart April 5 2004
This is a warm and touching movie. Often when movies try to tell multiple stories at once it's just confusing but this works so well. Give "heart" a chance.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good breadth, little depth Feb. 23 2004
This movie definitely has a lot of firepower in terms of its stars, the plot lines are interesting, and the characters are appealing. That said, because of the five separate story lines and the two hour running time, the amount of focus limited how much any one relationship could be developed. A good movie for romantics who don't mind a few tears!

4.0 out of 5 stars a charmer Feb. 12 2004
if you liked love actually, then you probably will also like
this one. There are separate stories being played, each touching
some aspect of interpersonal relationships.. girl avoiding intimacy, boy avoiding intimacy, wife looking elsewhere for intimacy.. This does have it's sombre moments as well as moments
that will make you laugh out loud.
sean connery's voice and humour is impeccable as ever..
The ending brings the stories together in a kind of satisfying finale.. all in all, a movie worth watching.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not to be missed Feb. 7 2004
In a strange turn of events, the ending of 'Playing by Heart' will have you wondering what you missed during the first hour and fifteen minutes of the movie. The story centers on several pairs of people, four couples, a mother and son and in a very strange and perplexing role, Dennis Quaid playing several different characters in several different scenes. His work in these scenes shines and harkens back to his glory days, reassuring us that his career is not over by any means. Another stand out role is Angelina Jolie, in one her first appearances. She absolutely radiates and steals every scene, leaving Ryan Philipee and his subtle performance in the dust. Not that it's a bad thing. Her character is sassy and full of life, where his is downtrodden, solitary and dark. Other stories involve a married couple approaching their 40th anniversary dealing with mortality and a bad memory from the past. Gillian Anderson and Jon Stewart play career individuals who are trying to get through awkward moments of their first dates. It's nice to see Anderson play a role that is insecure and troubled rather then her well known persona on X-Files where she is strong and confident. The stories play out their seperate plots and eventually climax with a emotional and uplifting finale that makes anyone whos ever been in a relationship feel something for all these people. I highly recommend this movie.
