Angel Eyes is a 2001 drama/romance film, directed by Luis Mandoki.
The film opens on an accident scene on a wet rainy night in Chicago. Sharon Pogue (Jennifer Lopez) is a police officer at the scene and she is holding the hand of one of the victims and pleading that he hold on, not to give up and help is on the way.
One year later, Sharon is now a very bitter, angry person. The reason for her anger turns out to be because she is estranged from her family. Some time in her past she had her father Carl (Victor Argo) arrested for beating her mother Josephine (Sonia Braga). Her father and brother, Larry Sr. (Jeremy Sisto) have found it hard to forgive her and so she is more or less ostracized from her family.
Meanwhile, a man named Catch (Jim Caviezel) wanders the streets of Chicago in a Zombie-like trance, doing good deeds, trying to help anybody he meets. He turns car lights off, he tells a young woman in his apartment building that she left her keys in the door.
Meawnhile, Sharon chases a criminal who gets her gun and shoots her twice but her vest protects her. Before he can shoot again, Catch jumps the man and knocks the gun away. Sharon and Catch meet at a tavern and have a drink. Sharon invites Catch to her apartment. They both don't like to tell each other much about their lives.
One night when Catch and Sharon are going out to dinner, they pass a blues club and go in. After the band has played a number, Catch notices a trumpet sitting on the bandstand. He picks the trumpet up and starts to play wonderfully. When he finishes, everyone applauds. The owner comes over and asks him where he's been keeping himself. He calls Catch by the name Steve Lambert, to which Catch denies even knowing the man. Sharon looks Steve Lambert up in the police files and discovers that he is the man whose hand she held in the car wreck at the beginning of the film. Catch's wife and child died in the car wreck. Sharon wants to help Catch heal from his emotional wounds and tries to talk about it. She tries taking him to the cemetery to see the graves of his family, but he gets very upset and leaves.
Sharon is having her own problems. Her mother and father are renewing their wedding vows and have asked her to come. She was going to go with Catch but he has not answered any of her calls. At the reception after the wedding ceremony, she tries to talk to her father but he tells her that he feels like he doesn't have a daughter. All this is going on while a man is videotaping the event. As Sharon starts to leave she stops and tells the man a wonderful story about her father, playing with herself and brother when they were children. She is deeply moved by thinking about this past occurrence and her father overhears it. When Sharon looks at him, he turns away. At the same time that the wedding and reception have been going on, we see Catch in the cemetery talking to his deceased wife and child, explaining how he remembers all the wonderful moments they shared.
When Sharon walks out of the door of the reception, Catch is standing by her car. They both have undergone emotional healings since they first met and they admit to being in love with one another. Sharon gets into her car and Catch starts to get in the passenger seat. He stops and tells Sharon that he wants to drive. He hasn't driven since the accident.
