Needs to be on DVD, 21 February 2006
Author: Richard Smith from Palos Verdes, CA

"Cafe Society" is a really good movie about the 50's that shows an underside to the squeaky-clean image that we normally associate with the Eisenhower era. It's sort of like "L.A. Confidential" and if you liked that movie you will definitely like this one. The movie captures a time and place where people were sexually liberated and, yes, there was some excessive behavior. Perhaps it was a foreshadowing of what was to come in the 60's. All the performances were good but Lara Flynn Boyle is a total standout. Hard to believe she went from this through "The Practice" and ended up in "Men In Black II" in less than a decade. For those of you who care about such things, there is an oral sex scene featuring her that pushes the boundaries for an R rated movie. Like I said I hope this gets a DVD release at some point because it clearly deserves one.
