Goofs

After admitting to his parents that he was playing stickball instead of visiting Naomi on the fourth day, Alan throws himself face-up on the couch and puts a newspaper over his face while his shirttails, which are not tucked in, fall back revealing his stomach (at 0:33:39 on the Feature Films for Families version and again at 0:34:25). As his father comes to the couch Alan's shirttails are neatly arranged, covering his stomach and belt (at 0:34:36). See more »

I understand that many have not seen this film.and i would not have found it again myself if it wasn't for this site. i saw this on a weekend special done by starz.and after that i've subscribed ever since, but they have never shown it , this movie if you look at it from the point of view of a child, shines to the truth Alan doesn't understand Naomi any better she does to him. anyone who has children will understand that it's hard to realize what they go through. how can a child understand the death of their parents if they've nothing to to compare it to.. if you believe that mother is god upon your lips than how can a poor Jewish boy who can't even speak your language assuage your grief?...this is a movie about breaking through...Alan and Naomi find what every wants and can't have if just for a moment... please i just wish you'd let it touch you the way it has me...I gave this movie a ten out of ten because it captures the human spirit ...and just like all it's watchers should have ...it gives you what you want.....courtesy William Shakespeare
