A tiny, charmingly-told story
2 June 1999 | by (Cincinnati, OH.) – See all my reviews

This overlooked film is a tiny, charmingly-told story of an unlikely couple who get married and set up housekeeping on an uninhabited Virgin Island. I don't know how they got Poitier and Cassavetes with what it obviously a minimal budget, but get them they did, and both turn in delightful performances.
