I really pondered over and rewrote this review several times
This was the first movie I watched with Richard Thomas in as a mature man. It has become my favorite, although I don't know why, unless it has to do with Brooke Shields. She's a beautiful girl, but let's face it, she really can't act. However, she did lend creditability to her part by possibly drawing on her own stalking experience. She was miscast in my opinion, the real Laura Black was petite. Thomas spends most of his scenes with her gazing up into her face with those gorgeous blue eyes of his. Once again, the real talent here is Thomas. Arrogant, pushy, and menacing though most of it, at the end, he effectively generates sympathy for his benevolent and suffering character On the outside looking in is indeed a lonely place. And who knows..maybe she did point her finger at some time and laugh at him. The special and gifted do take advantage of the lesser. Some of the acting is not very good-but Thomas shines as he ALWAYS does. The movie is based on fact-you can look it up on the net. The scene where Farley looks up at her with that longing and surety in his incredible eyes and says, you and I were meant for each other, Laura, all I know is we were meant to be together-forever is what did it for me. That and the blueberry bread he baked for her in the first part of the movie. Even psycotics have their moments.
