Changing Habits (1997)
A somber tale.
The movie is about a girl named Susan who is trying to live her life independently from her father. She has a lot of animosity for her father because she blames him for the abject memories of her childhood. Moira Kelly plays Susan who steals and lies to get what she desires. She deceived her way into a convent after she was evicted from her apartment. She shop lifts paint supplies from a local art store. She justifies her actions by the moral standard she learned from her parents. Then she meets a guy named Felix who looks past these moral flaws and helps her face the past. She learns a lot from Felix and over time she decides to face her past and learns that her father isn't the person who is to blame for her wretched childhood.
Susan carries a lot of emotional baggage from her past like resentment, anger and hatred. I got a chance to witness another side to Moira's acting abilities that I haven't seen in a previous film. Moira displays these emotions very vividly and her mannerisms add another dimension to her character. I also liked Christopher Lloyd who has starred in the Back To The Future trilogy. His character is in turmoil over Susan's past and how he desperately wants to be a part of her present life.
I neither liked nor disliked this movie. I am indifferent. This movie can be somber or uplifting and humorous. It just depends on how you interpret the subject matter. Moira and Christopher are very good and I only wish other actors and actresses could take lessons from them. The memories that Susan and her father share is the reason why I think this movie is very sad.
The Cutting Edge (1992)
A refreshing romantic comedy
First and foremost Moira Kelly is a talented actress. Moira has a gift for convincing her audience that she isn't acting and she proves this point in the movie. This is one of the better romantic comedy flicks that I have seen. The characters, Kate & Doug, have a mutual antagonistic attitude toward one another which leads to a romantic climax. The only negative aspect of this film is that the ending is very predictable. However, I still find this movie to be entertaining and refreshing.
