“The Thing Called Love” is a 1993 film about a young woman from New York who is a country music fanatic. She aspires to become a singer and songwriter, hence decided to take her chances in Nashville, Tennessee. That woman was Miranda Presley played by actress Samantha Mathis. When Miranda arrived in Music City, she met James Wright played by the late young actor River Phoenix. James was an aspiring country singer in the film, full of charm but who’s also moody. Despite such, the two instantly fell in love with each other.
