Sommersby has everything to succeed. There's just one minor problem in this Americanized remake of The Return of Martin Guerre: Who can believe Richard Gere and Jodie Foster as a Tennessee Ashley and Scarlett? Full Review

Rating: 3.5/4 -- From start to finish, it is a well-crafted film: part love story, part mystery, and all drama. Full Review

If you're looking for a picturesque romance -- with a little intrigue on the side -- you could do worse than Sommersby. Full Review
Washington Post

Hobbled with a meandering script, an erratic performance by Richard Gere, and an overbearing score by Danny Elfman. Full Review

...Icy with suspicion, fiery with passion - Foster's eyes alone convey a thousand pages of dialogue... -- 3 out of 4 stars
USA Today
Feb 5, 1993
...SOMMERSBY is an unabashedly romantic and at the some time morally intricate Civil War-era tale splendidly acted by Richard Gere and Jodie Foster...

...Nothing [Foster] has done to date is preparation for the romantic, resolute, elegant performance she gives...
