Rather Pointless Remake Save for the Musical Score
24 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Rather pedestrian direction leaves Jane Curtin seeming needy and not particularly skilled as a dramatic actress, and Anthony Andrews seeming little more than smug in most scenes. Curtin's wardrobe by Ralph Lauren is nice, the look of the film is nice, but most of all what I love about the film is the melancholy score by Larry Grossman. That alone has kept the film in my mind for nearly 20 years now (I first watched it on PBS's American Playhouse curled up in the San Francisco Bay Area with the fog rolling in and a pot of tea before me -- a magical combination). I wish the score were available on CD, but alas it doesn't appear to be. Perhaps there will be a collection of Larry Grossman's music in the future that features it.
