I love this movie!
15 May 2003 | by (vasteras, sweden) – See all my reviews

I´m a big fan of the fifties and this is in my opinion one of the best movies showing as that time period. Great music, great cast (all unknown, except sandra bullock) and a great story. This is a film I recommend to all you 50`s bums.
