At the beginning of "dream" part of the movie, Charlie's hair is a very light blond. Toward the middle of the movie, it's noticeably darker. At the end, it's light blond again. See more »
Then you think time travel is possible for people?
Yes. It's absolutely possible for people, for dogs, for cancan girls.
Oh, then I'm not crazy.
Well, I really don't know if you're crazy. I know most people think I am.

I'm surprised by the number of people on here who don't like this movie. Like a few of the positive reviewers I'd have to say this is one of my favorite, "contemporary classics." The story is exquisite, who wouldn't want to go back to a time when things were a bit simpler and someone was there to take care of you and make you feel safe? Whenever I stumble upon it, I end up watching it. Too many scenes start the old water works for me.
Peggy seeing her little sister for the first time, going into her old bedroom, and hearing her grandmother's voice on the phone are all quite touching.
Call me crazy but I just love the moment where Charlie takes Peggy down into the basement and confronts her about what is going on. When he leaves, Peggy opens a music box, pulls out a cigarette and lights it.
Another special moment happens when Peggy smokes a joint and talks about what she'd like to be when she grows up, as she turns around and around under a starry sky.
This is quite a good movie, filled with many special performances and scenes along the way.
