Storyline

Two lost souls: she a con-artist in L.A.; he a puppeteer in San Antonio have the same dream linking each with the other. He travels to L.A. to find this woman he has become obsessed with. She resists, afraid of his kooky ideas until she travels with him to San Antonio and meets his wise grandmother. Story of two disparate people linked by "fate" gets increasingly interesting as it rolls along. Written by Ed Lorusso

Trivia

Goofs

Fletcher McBracken, after loosely and raggedly cutting out a women's picture, goes to throw it in a basket, and when it lands in the basket the cut out picture is perfectly and roundly trimmed right up to the image of the women. See more »

Quotes

Ida, Fletcher's Grand Mother: I know. It's more of a curse than a blessing.
Rosalyn Willoughby: What?
Ida, Fletcher's Grand Mother: Being smart and what people call beautiful. I'm not bragging, but in my day I was considered quite a catch. I don't think I ever met a man I felt could outsmart me - out-think me. How those silly creatures did bore me. Oh, it does cause quite a fuss, that combination: smart and beautiful. But it's mostly in your own gut. See, the problem is, you stop believing that he *could* be out there waiting for you.
Rosalyn Willoughby: Who?
Ida, Fletcher's Grand Mother: Your true love.

The best Truth/Love screenplay that's ever been written?
16 July 2003 | by (Chicago, IL, USA) – See all my reviews

I'm blown away by this screenplay. It's the best modern movie about "true love" I've seen. The emotional depth portrayed in the characters is explosive yet classic. Marry that with incredible cinematographic images and a wonderfully eclectic, sophisticated soundtrack, and you've got the ingredients to a contender for my short list of all-time favorites. As you can tell by this over the top reccomendation, this movie's got the kind of overboard sentimentality that inspires the same in me!
