Cute and engaging. Better than average for an indie.
Penelope Ann Miller stars with Ron Silver and Craig Sheffer in this beautifully crafted independent feature. Set in small upper middle class neighborhood, this is the tale of Lila Bloom (Penelope Ann Miller) and her brother Mitch Bloom (Ron Silver) and Mitch's three kids. Lila takes care of mitch's kids after Mitch's wife, who was also Lila's best friend. Lila has committed herself to the kids foresaking her passion as a painter and protecting herself from any personal relationship with a boyfriend. When Mitch announces his engagement, Lila is forced to reconsider her reality. In comes Jack (Craig Sheffer) to save Lila from her deafening loneliness. This is an engaging tale with some truly fine performances. Penelope Ann Miller was presented with a specially created award for Best Actress for Rhapsody in Bloom at the Hollywood (Ca.) Film Festival early in 1998. The writing is solid and the plot progresses smoothly. More could have been made out of the tension between Mitch's fiance and Lila, but overall, this is really a fine film.
