Laughing Through Your Tears
30 December 1998 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

The phrase "laughing through your tears" must have been invented for this little jewel of a movie. Yes, there are scenes that I would have preferred they omit (mainly the brothel scene-- oh brother). But the overriding emotion in the performances of both Dalton and Edwards is riveting. And Dalton CAN play comedy. Don't play this for the monthly meeting of the AARP; but if hope and love mean anything to you, take a couple of hours and watch it. It can be life-changing.
