I love Kevin Kline.
25 April 2002 | by (St. Louis, Missouri) – See all my reviews

Kevin Kline is one of my very favorites. He's quite sexy in this film. Sissy Spacek is beautiful. When the two looked at each other, they made the screen melt. This is one time I was rooting for the 'other woman.' It makes us all think about the one that got away.
