An observant, empathetic, and well-detailed romance
19 January 1999 | by (Scotts Valley, California) – See all my reviews

I was immediately charmed by Nobody's Fool, and it was my first introduction to the widely versatile Rosanna Arquette. With its empathetic well-written effort to follow people trapped in their everyday lives, I believe the film can resonate inside many of its viewers. All cast characters are beautifully detailed and framed; everyone is likeable at one level or another. Again, viewers may "recognize" some of these people in their own lives. A brilliant cast reflects the highly observant screenplay very nicely.

Adding realism is a feeling that the lead role is a self-definition of Rosanna Arquette herself. This engaging factor gives the film a palpable third dimension of depth. I personally think it's her best film to date.
