Dragonfly (aka One Summer Love in the U.S.)
10 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie recently on an old VHS tape and thought Beau Bridges did a wonderfully intense job portraying Jesse, the young man trying to find out the real truth about why he was institutionalized in his early teens. Film is good about not revealing the truth until the uttermost end, so there is a lot of suspense in finding out whether what you guessed is the reason is the real reason.

The story and scenes between the characters could have been developed much better than they were. Also the powers that be on this film could have developed the relationship scenes a bit better (as in MORE scenes) between Susan Sarandon's (who is very good in this too with what she is given) and Beau Bridges' characters.

All in all an okay movie which could have been so much better if the writers/producers had tried harder at scene development.

I give it a 5 overall and an almost 8 or 9 for Beau Bridges' GREAT acting---really made me feel for his character, plus I have a huge bias for him at this age---so darn cute!
