Jamie Lee Delivers a Tour-De-Force Performance
18 September 2001 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

Jamie Lee Curtis obviously bonded with Wendy Wasserstein in a special way in this production. The life she gave to the character of Heidi Holland transcended acting and writing.

The movie profiles Heidi as she raises her consciousness and her humanity by learning from life. The movie has a marvelous sense of humor and an even more delicious sense of irony. But it never sacrifices the integrity of any of its characters to score with a gag.

Tom Hulce is marvelous as the boy who loves her but finds he also needs to get more in touch with who he is before he can commit. Peter Friedman, who played the father in the TV-series Brooklyn Bridge, is marvelous as the confident, yet shallow, Scoop Rosenberg. Sharon Lawrence and Roma Maffia are terrific in supporting roles.

The direction from Wendy Wasserstein is quite impressive for a novice. The pacing is always brisk, but never brusque. The scenes weave seamlessly together like a perfect cross-stitch.

I watch this movie in the aftermath of the World Trade Center terrorism. I desperately needed something to lift my spirits. The Heidi Chronicles did that job, and much more. It is a terrific movie.
