Quotes

Kippy Newberg: You're on the stage, and there we're all Cyrano, all loving with no hope of true love in return; all Roxanne, loving an illusion of love; all Christian, loving with words that are not our own; all imperfect. Parading or imperfections, in spite of our fears, with one thought in mind: to play true to the end. To risk all, and to be left with only that which is most dear.

Patty Duke Shines On The Big Screen!
22 February 2005 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Saw this interesting film the other day and I would recommend it! Interesting story set in Portland Oregon. Any theatre buffs would love it. The only negative comment I have is the darkness of the film! Director,Where are the lights? Patty Duke looks great and plays twins again! Really touching ending! Hope that this film gets national release! The theatre I saw it at did not even have an accompanying poster advertising the film.Sean Astin plays a small part in the film. I was wondering if this was the first time that mother and son had appeared together on screen?Check your local newspaper for this film!If you love the theater you will love "Bigger Than The Sky".
