loved it - wish it was longer
22 September 2007 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

i saw a screening of this film and really loved it. Both of the women were really talented. knowing that its based on a true story makes it that much more fascinating. it was in black and white - which sometimes I find boring or snobbish, but it made the story that much more real and true to the time period of the early 1960's. They definitely captured the glamor and chaos of the relationships. it was also interesting to see the problems repeated between father and son. Loved the wardrobe! My only complaint was that it wasn't longer. i would love to see the full version of this film as soon as its made. I lived in Chicago for a while, and they really captured the feel of the city - both the the big and small aspects of living there.
