Such a beautiful film!
27 June 2002 | by (Maryland) – See all my reviews

I've watched this movie at least 30 times, and I never get over how amazing it is. Sissy Spacek, Kevin Kline, and Bonnie Bedelia are so compelling, and I pine for Ocean City over and over again! This movie will take you back to every "what if" you ever had. A classic!
