Woody Allen called them 'Kamikaze Women'. Whip smart, alluring as hell, dynamic, and sexually predatory. The kind of women that own every room they walk into, and who think of all men as 'boys'. Yet, just beneath the surface, there is an insecurity and fear they cannot face. HALE BOPP is the story of just such a woman; her name is Rachel. The year is 1997. The comet Hale-Bopp is shooting across the sky for the last time in 4000 years. And in Wicker Park (Chicago's answer to Greenwich Village), Rachel is about to meet her cosmic match. Ethan, a confident young architect and seeming 'perfect guy' has invested himself, and his heart, in women like Rachel before - and he is sure he has learned his lesson. Together, Ethan and Rachel navigate the course of a relationship that is as infuriating as it is inspired, as tender as it is passionate.

I felt like I was watching my life on the screen!
15 September 2002 | by ( Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

I thought "Rachel" was absolutely fantastic. She was refreshingly non-traditional, amazingly photogenic, and a wonderful actress that didn't appear to be acting at all. She was "Rachel" in the flesh, and she had everyone in love with her at the first scene. The direction and cinematography made the viewer feel as if they were yet another friend within the circle of friends observing and watching the situations unfold.

It didn't seem forced, the story line unfolded naturally and logically, and paralleled real life drama rather that a cookie cutter Hollywood prototype of a "love" story. The situations were believable, the dialogue witty and impactful... ...I really enjoyed the film. I was again especially pleased to find it sticking along real-life lines rather than playing the Hollywood scripting game, and the characters were undoubtedly brought to life by the wonderful actors and actresses.
