The best film that Timothy Dalton played in.
4 August 1999 | by See all my reviews

It's hard to say much. The film is drama and a comedy in one. It's very moving but it's also very funny. I believe that it's not that easy to make that kind of film. It proves that Robert Ellis Miller is one of the best directors ever. Both of the main actors - Timothy Dalton and Anthony Edwards should get Oscars for the roles. PEOPLE YOU MUST SEE "HAWKS" !!!
