Storyline

Jeremy Jones is learning cello at an arts school in New York. At school he spots Susan Rollins, who practices for a ballet audition, and he falls in love on first sight. He's very diffident in nearing her, so he gets some help of his experienced friend Ralph. Susan's first impression isn't great, until she hears him play his cello. The movie paints a quiet image of him winning her heart and the development of their relationship. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

As good as the book
6 October 2004 | by (Chichester England) – See all my reviews

I saw this film after reading the book and loved it just as much. There are many things I enjoyed about the story/film such as the music, love and the cross town New York bus rides on a Saturday morning. Bus it was the way Jeremy raced other people in the street as if he was in his own horse race-this may sound silly but worked really well and Robby Benson pulls it off in a brilliant touching way. It shows a boy/young man in his own world finding someone who loved him for what he is. The wonderful cello music holds the story together and is not heavy-handed which it could easily have been with a lesser cast and director.

I would love to have the DVD and hope when it comes out there are plenty of extras such as location info and (lots)interviews.

9.5 out of 10
