Wonderful film, totally magic; agree with all comments made. I've been trying to get it for 11 years, and failed to date March 25 2009!
I loved this film, and I've been trying to get a copy of it for 11 years. Alas, without any success at all!! I've seen the comments of Court_TV_fan600, and totally agree with everything said: It contains a magic which is rare. It is a comedy like no other - sad, surreal and with lots of meaning. I've read some negative comments about Dianne Keaton's performance, but I think she plays a GREAT comedy part in this: a busy New Yorker who doesn't really have time to leave the city, but she goes to the town, and, at first, 'sticks out like a sore thumb' in the small town. It's great to follow the film and see how she gets to love the place, the people and the child. Joseph Cross Plays an excellent part, too. Oh, how I wish I could see it again! Does anyone know where I can get a copy? Could you have one made for me? I'd be happy to pay you in advance. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I LONG to see it again and share it with my four kids. David (Wales, UK)
