Harry and Sue Lewis met in the 40es as teenagers living in the Bronx. He was an aspiring architect, she was the most beautiful girl in school, and both had a fondness for bran muffins. They fell in love, got married, moved to Los Angeles, and had two kids. While struggling with his midlife crisis, Harry receives an invitation for his high school's reunion back so he takes Sue and their teenage kids on a cross-country car trip back to the Big Apple. Will they see in the Bronx what they expected? Will the good memories from their past help rekindle their fading love? Is it too late to dream? Written by

A wonderfully-bittersweet, see-again-and-again little classic.
If you like romantic, nostalgic films about rediscovered old loves and never-forgotten old friendships, look for this film (which may be a bit of a challenge) and see it again and again.
I recall that some reviews on FILA were unflattering at time of release, but I've learned that too many films that we now consider terrifically entertaining and fulfilling over the years were never graced with approval at time of release by some reviewers - while conversely, some real celluloid stinkers have enjoyed critical support. The reasons for this were never clear to me as a paying film-goer.
I recommend this heartily to all. (And remember to remain through the credits for the unforgettable closing song, a lost classic from Johnny Mathis, Carol Connors and Michel LeGrand.)
