Sarah Jessica Parker,
A young Hungarian girl struggles to find her place in the world when she's reunited with her parents in the USA years after she was left behind during their flight from the communist country in the 1950s.
Two people from completely different worlds meet by chance, thrown together as if by fate. Their attraction is immediately obvious and overwhelming. He is attracted to her beauty (she is a supermodel) and good humor; she is seduced by his charisma and honesty. With his gifts of poetry and tenderness, he opens her heart to the possibility of true love. But it takes a lot of courage to make a commitment. Is she truly in love with him? And even if she is, will she able to leave the cosmopolitan, superficial lifestyle to be with him? Written by
I don't know how I missed this movie in first release. Saw today as a FLIX freebie and by the end was absolutely stunned. I wept for sadness and for joy. I think this is one of the best sleeper films I have seen in quite some time: the cinematography, the quirky characters, the narration, the issues, the musical score all combine to create a world that pulls you in. How refreshing to see a man comfortable with two strong women friends. How awesome to see rarely filmed wonderful shots of New York. Although the sex scenes at first seem perhaps a bit boring, they also felt real. The protagonist's poetry invited reflection. The film's ending narration was brilliant. I definitely recommend that you see this film if you are at all interested in a meditation on life's choices and uncertainty and hope.
