Storyline

Sara Deever, a kooky Brooklyn Heights girl, sublets apartments and paints in her spare time. Each month, Sara selects from her lodgers a new lover - but only on the condition that he will let their affair end when the month expires. When Charlie Blake, a box manufacturer and her lover-of-the-month, falls in love with her, he is unwilling to give her up. Sara insists, even though it is obvious that she too has fallen in love. As the month runs out, Charlie searches desperately for the key to Sara's persistence. What he discovers provides the haunting climax to this love story. Written by alfiehitchie

Quotes

Sara Deever: You did it again, you know, you did it again.
Charlie Blake: I did what?
Sara Deever: A few minutes ago.
Charlie Blake: What, Sara, what?
Sara Deever: I had a dream, and you were in it, and then you misbehaved.
Charlie Blake: Sara, I can't be held responsible for the way I behave in your dreams.
Sara Deever: Yes you can. A dream is simply a truth that never happened. Just because it never happened doesn't mean's untrue.

A beautiful and charming film.
8 October 2000 | by (cincinnati, ohio) – See all my reviews

Sandy Dennis stars as a kooky, but kind girl who takes a different man under her wing every month and works to resolve their problems. In doing so, she seeks to take her mind off her own troubles. This was a great vehicle for the supremely gifted Dennis who, by this time, had already won the Oscar for her supporting role in WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF? and took the starring role in UP THE DOWN STAIRCASE. As irresistable and memorable as she was in these two films, I think she leaves an even more indelible impression with SWEET NOVEMBER. Co-star Anthony Newley, who plays her conquest for November, indeed contributes some fine moments, but this is Dennis' film all the way. There is no way that the remake, scheduled for release next year, will be able to hold a candle to this gem.
