Actress Melissa Jaffer once said that her role as Rabbit's wife Vi in this film was her favorite film role to date: "I really loved playing Vi. The love relationship between Vi and Rabbit is a very strong element in the book and the film. Vi's whole attention is taken up with the relationship. She loves Rabbit and understands him in a way that nobody else does. But she wants so much for him to be accepted by the other men in town. That is her main concern". See more »
This is one of the top films of the late seventies. It is a real sleeper, as not many people will have had the opportunity to witness its charms in an actual cinema. I believe it shows great insight into character and the human condition. John Waters gives a finely restrained performance and the balance of tragedy to comedy is deftly worked. A terrific piece along the possible lines of Whistle Down the Wind - Bryan Forbes film starring Alan Bates. Well worth the effort. Enjoy your cinema. Andy
