Just watched A Perfect Ending, and am speachless,overcome with this film. Barbara is deliously beautiful, and Jesscia sets the room on fire.I am so conflicted,I' m in love with these divas! I must admit this film explores an older woman so delicately. Jessica is breathtaking and will be a shooting star, perhaps a Comet. Thanks,Nicole You
get better and better.
