A 50 year old adman (Robert Urich) loses his job. Rather than facing trying to find a new job, he decides to try to make it on the senior golf tour. This causes him to neglect his wife (Meredith Baxter) and family.
When I go into movies, after having read the book, I usually go in expecting disappointment. But last night, as I watched Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas, I was reminded of just how wonderful this story was. It was beautiful, thought-out, and everything and adaptation should be.
Chistina Appelgate was wonderful as Suzanne. And Johnathon Schaech, never having seen him in anything except Doom Generation, was the perfect person for the role. And the support cast did their jobs. But my main compliments go to the director/writer: Richard Friedenberg. He understands what fans want, and gives it to them.
For those who have read the book, do yourself a favor, and watch this movie. For those who have only seen the movie: read the book.
