Good film
13 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Nearly a quarter-century after its release, this film still packs an emotional wallop. One of the very few Hollywood films to level any kind of criticism at the young generation, specifically big- city people, the story in many ways seems even more timely today (in 2005) than when it was made.

Paul Newman gives one of his best performances in this film, and character actor Joanne Woodwardbecame a household name thanks to his dramatic turn in the movie's climatic scene near the end. The actress is simply herself, which makes her the weakest element of the entire film and the only reason not to give this classic effort a perfect 10.

The sex is minimal, the physical violence practically non-existent (except for a short, tense scene between Newman and Fields) and the dialogue tight and gripping. Still worth your time, 25 years later.
