an unusual love story
8 December 2002 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

That´s what the cover said, well i can agree to that. I always liked Kiefer Sutherland and his performance is not bad in this one either. So whats this move all about. Brooks (Kiefer Sutherland) is a eccentric rich kid with a foundness for big band music. He is dominated by his older brother Clevland (Peter Spence) that has a foundness for drugs and party. One day Brooks meets Annie, a deaf girl and they develop a special friendship and new understandings.

Well a good drama/love story depends on there charachters very much, and there are some flaws, for a start his brother played by Peter Spence is badly played, i guess its partly the directors fault. The movie has much of this 80´s style in it, but not all bad. I guess if the brother was played by somebody else and not totaly styled, this move could have been more timeless. As it is now, i get irritated everytime i see the guy. Well the movie is still good, i found it to be a very nice down to earth love story about to different types of induviduals, it has a nice pace and nice big band music (and a real crappy 80´s pop band ^^) and Kiefer is putting up a very nice preformance.

If you like to see a different down to earth 80´s love story, this is the movie.
