One of the best movies of Natalie's career
26 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is my favorite Natalie Wood movie. I love her in all of her movies, but this is just the BEST. She just comes across as so REAL in this picture.

It doesn't seem a stretch at all for Natalie to play the character of Alva. The character probably closely models Natalie's life in regard to her search for love and acceptance.

In the movie, Alva has ongoing issues with her mother, as Natalie did in real life.

If you like Natalie at all, you have got to see this movie. I feel it will become one of your favorites as it has mine.
