Moving, funny and sweet
7 February 2000 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

When I watched Leaving Normal, I found that Meg Tilly and Christine Lahti made the perfect best friend team. Tilly and Lenny von Dohlen made the perfect couple, yet funny with it. Von Dohlen has some funny moments and he is very, very sweet with it (especially when he's crying in the truck after reading a sad story). This a very underrated movie that has an excellent cast.
