Summary
Lord Richard Attenborough, one of the worlds most respected film makers (Ghandi, Cry Freedom, Chaplin, Shadowlands), helms a deeply moving love story, beautifully interwoven between the 1940s and the present. Inspired by true events and spanning fifty years, Closing the Ring tells the story of how an American woman honoured a wartime promise with a lifetime of denial and how the discovery of a gold ring brought her back to life. In 1991, a small American town quietly mourns the loss of Chuck Harris: father, husband and honoured World War II pilot. His wife, Ethel Ann (Shirley MacLaine), refuses to mourn, drowning herself in alcohol and neglecting her daughter, Marie. But when Marie receives a curious phone call from a boy in Northern Ireland who claims to have discovered a ring belonging to Ethel Ann, a chain of events is ignited. As its narrative travels backward into the wartime past to Ethel Ann (Mischa Barton) as a spirited young woman living in Michigan, capturing the hearts of three friends, all Air Force men; to a passionate romance and a secret pact Closing the Ring collects the pieces of a truly profound puzzle one by one
