A Very Personal Night Shared with the Viewers
23 August 2003 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In the end of the 60's or in the beginning of the 70's, Rich Cooper (Tobey Maguire) goes with his mother Rebecka (the gorgeous and sexy Kate Capshaw) to a crazy party, where Janis Joplin and other stranger guests are present. He gets a bootleg tape of his idol Bob Dylan from the host (Kiefer Sutherland), a kiss from a beautiful girl he met in the party, Maya (Uma Thurman) and a news in the end: that night, his father had left his mother. This short story seems to be the experience of probably some important person in Hollywood when he was young. It is very personal. It is about a very special night of a teenager, an `asshole' in the eyes of the girls as mentioned by Rich to Maya, who goes to a party, makes success with a beautiful girl, gets a great gift and receives unpleasant news. My vote is six.
