Free Vinmeo Link to see "Surprised By Oxford!"

When faith and intellect intersect, you know there's going to be a story to tell. "Surprised by Oxford" is a movie based on a memoir by Caro Weber, a former scholar of and then first female dean at one of the Oxford University colleges. 

I don't usually watch romantic movies. They make me cry. And the classic and predictable scenes of true love did indeed leave me weepy, but it was such a good story as well. I recommend seeing it, if you're looking to relax and be entertained. It's worth watching.

While attending Oxford University on a full scholarship, she meets and falls in love with the man who will later become her husband and the father of their 4 children. It is a beautiful story of a woman who while challenging the concept of a higher power being real, comes into her own while meeting those who will become lifelong friends. She also meets the future love of her life.

Movie Synopsis: Caro Drake, a brilliant but emotionally guarded American student, arrives at the University of Oxford with the goal of attaining her PhD. Through a turbulent friendship with a charming young man, she begins to open herself up to mystery, vulnerability, and love.

I saw one of the interviews with the main actress and the actual author of the memoir and it was very genuine and sweet. This is a story that everyone can relate to, and as Ms. Weber noted, it's both special and ordinary (in the very best of ways). There is a longing in each of us for the most important things. When we find our way to them, it should perhaps, be our duty to share them.
