Watch City of Angels
- 1 hr 54 min
Starring Nicholas Cage and Meg Ryan, this film from 1998 was the subject of the Goo-Goo Dolls' hit single, "Iris," prominently featured in the film. The story centers around Maggie (Ryan), a brilliant heart surgeon with no time for love, and Seth (Cage), an angel who frequents the hospital where she works. Seth is moved by Maggie's fervor and persistence in saving her patients, and decides to reveal himself to her. As their relationship blossoms and they fall in love, Seth longs for Maggie, but knows he could never have her. Maggie, likewise, is drawn to him, but finds his inability to explain his past or present disconcerting. Finally, through a former angel, Seth learns that he could, in fact, become human. But, it would mean giving up heaven and his immortality. Seth must wrestle with this question in this timeless tale of love between mortals and gods.
