It has become one of my top 10 movies for life!
8 June 2001 | by (Illinois) – See all my reviews

A friend of a friend allowed us to browse her movie collection for a few to watch one evening; this one I picked out only because it was one of the few that even looked watchable. How glad I am that it was one of our choices! It has become one of my favorites, I've watched it 5 times and am in the process of procuring a copy. Why? I can't explain, except that it takes you by surprise and touches your heart and it must go beyond that, to some glimpse of eternal truth of the human soul and spirit. Perhaps something to do with "l'beau sauvage." Even though you'd at first think the characters are stereotypes, that evaporates when Joanne and Brian BECOME the flawed but likeable Vinnie and Chuck. Please see this movie at least once, because I'd like to know if anyone else had the impulse to see it often, like I and another reviewer did. I even bought the book by Alison Lurie, from which the movie is taken; it was the same yet different (as those things go), but it was a gem also, on it's own ground! I recommend both! Soon!
