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

One of my all-time favorites!
13 May 1999 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

I can't tell you how thrilled I was to learn I have kindred spirits out there who love Sweet November as I do. I don't know a soul who's even heard of this movie, let alone counts it among their favorites. Thanks to divine providence, I caught this little treasure while channel surfing in the wee, small hours of the morning over 20 years ago. Everything about it was magical--the charming Greenwich Village-y coach house setting, Michel Legrand's lush background music, the unusual premise, but, of course, above all, the actors. Sandy Dennis is just right as the beguiling Sara Deever..."partly woman, but mostly child." The supporting cast was wonderful, especially Theodore Bikel. But it was Anthony Newley as the tender, oh-so- endearing "wisenheimer" Charlie Blake that stole my heart and made this movie unforgettable. When he lays "a thousand Novembers" at Sara's feet begging her to let him stay forever...well, the lump in my throat was the size of a goose egg. I was so saddened by Mr. Newley's untimely death, but just as Charlie whispers to Sara at the end, I, too,..."will always remember."
