What a fabulous cast! What a treat and a surprise!
14 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just saw this movie last weekend at the Piedmont Filmmakers Festival in Warrenton Virginia! I had never seen it before, so it was a great treat! Not dated at all, it really should be re-released because it's message is timeless.

At first this movie seems predictable and simple but as it progresses and you become familiar with the characters it blossoms.

Sally Kellerman is timeless and so sadly sexy and subtly miserable. William Hurt is just dreamy. Apparently his first film, and yet he shows here all the charisma of later films with a brand of boyish charm that should be bottled and sold over the counter.

An added surprise was a wonderful cameo role by famous producer Ron Maxwell. Get a copy of this movie and enjoy!
