    There’s something about ‘Never Forever’ that was so intriguing to me- I rented it and watched it 3 times. I later decided I really wanted to own it.

    Vera Farmiga plays Sophie Lee, an upper class woman married to a successful Korean businessman who is troubled and depressed. The couple desperately want children but the husband is unable to make Sophie conceive. After his suicide attempt, Sophie steps well out of her comfortable world and in desperation secretly propositions a poor illegal Korean alien to get her pregnant. It is amazing to watch her and her ‘hired man’ move from total strangers ‘in business’ to an unexpected and very passionate love affair which opens a fresh world for Sophie, free from her husband’s controlling nature. I highly recommend it.

    A Must See of a Very Unusual Love Story, March 24, 2015

    Sophie, played by Vera Farmiga, is a upper class Caucasian wife that is married to a successful Korean-American lawyer. Her husband, Andrew, just buried his father and there has always been a wish for a male child to carry on the family lineage. When Andrew finds that he is sterile it drives him to a suicide attempt. All of this devastates Sophie and she is desperate in trying to give him a child although they have tried to conceive before, but to no avail. Sophie then pays for sex to an illegal Korean alien named Jihah to conceive a child for her husband and to save their marriage. She falls in love with Jihah even though she tries not to. The story is compelling in that she has to make a choice between two men that she loves and the future for her and her child. This film addresses so many real life issues on love, interracial marriage, suicide, choices on artificial insemination, abortion, spirituality, and immigration, etc. and the difficulty in making right choices. What is a right choice for one may not be right for another. I think the ending is clear. There are hints that Sophie comes to terms that she has to do what is right for her and her son and bring fulfillment to her life. Sometimes one has to start over from nothing as the film indicates.

    Vera Farmiga is one of the best actresses of all time. I don’t think anyone tops her. She can be funny, honest, open, emotional, sensual, innocent and passionate, all at once in the characters and roles she chooses, and it seems that all of it comes so natural for her. She is a consummate actress. Vera gives 100% in every performance I have seen. It is such a delight to follow her career and I am looking forward to more films like this one with better distribution to fans everywhere. I know I will watch this film again in the future as it just “grabs you.”
