A MOVIE GEM.
1 September 1999 | by (UNITED STATES) – See all my reviews

Without going into to many details of the movie, I will say it's one of those movies which was a nice surprise. I think it's one movie for Jennifer Connelly, where it shows that she's a really great actress. It's also not like a lot of her movies, where she's just the beautiful women. She's warm, lovable, and she draws you into her character. The rest of the cast is really good also, but I think this is Jennifer's movie. I watched this movie, over & over a number of times, and I have to say I love it more each time I see it! It's just about friends getting together, in a house with a special person on a boat docked, close to them. They all have issues to deal with, and this get together brings it all to a head. Just take my word, you will love this movie. For me it's the kind of movie I felt was a special gift that was given to me. Rent, or buy it. It's well worth it!
