Fine Moments of Acting & Still Relevant Material About How Wacky America Is
12 July 2003 | by (Santa) – See all my reviews

Not all the acting in this movie works, Paul Newman is too reserved in his acting at times and the others too; but then there are steady moments where the intelligent script addresses real issues about American Society.

Issues that are still relevant today. Chasing 'success' at what price; mixed feelings among all the players of the local play; natural attractions turning into betrayal and games. Every dumb thing that still goes on in relationships in our sadly repetitive american society.
