Five minutes into this film, I was a little wary of the poetic dialogue and eccentric characters, but the story certainly builds - and Natasha Richardson is amazing in the lead role; Zelda's vulnerability and decline are heartbreaking to watch, and are portrayed with subtlety and sensitivity by Miss Richardson. I was in awe. Both she and Timothy Hutton hurtle from comedy to tears so suddenly and so effectively that the Fitzgerald's antics, though amusing, are also sometimes painful to watch. The dialogue, after the rosy glow of the initial romance dims slightly, is also sharp and perceptive, particularly Zelda's lines. I even liked the young actress playing Scottie, the daughter! I would definitely recommend this film, if you can find a copy, and I am now inspired to read up on the real F. Scott and Zelda!
