Crop And Save
An exceptional story about a woman learning to be an artist in a restrictive time and place. The story, images, and acting are magnificent. Please take time to see this reflectively. The characters are strong and three-dimensional. The choices they make in the early part of the 20th Century probably aren't ones we ourselves might choose. It is a movie which shows subtlety and nuances. My friends and I loved this film for the strength of the woman, her yearning for self-expression, her ability to have artistic vision in an era where there was no encouragement,the delicate balance of the relationships and limitation of choices--given the hard realities of money and social constraints. You will find it moving.
charming, fun, quirky
This is a highly enjoyable movie about an interesting, charming blue collar woman trapped in a tightly defined life, who is unaware of the gifts of talent, friendship, and resourcefulness she possesses. We, the lucky audience, are fortunate to watch her along with Becky and Dawn, her co-worker waitresses, as their lives unfold in the little pie shop. Jeremy Sisto is convincingly creepy as the controlling husband, and Andy Griffith does a fun star turn as the cranky owner of the diner. All of the actors, of course, including Keri Russell, are funny, eccentric and real. What more could we ask of the screenplay and the direction? Adrienne Shelly did indeed leave us a beautiful gift of a film.
Addicted to Love (1997)
Love this movie
The obsessive nature of romantic love, the ardor and persistence of rejected suitors are highly complementary to the intensity of life in Manhattan, the setting. Of course, the setting is also appropriate for the idea of spying through windows. Haven't we all yearned for the love object and ridiculously obsessed about them after failing in romance? The ingenuity of invention displayed by the characters played by Meg Ryan, the more radical of the two, and Matthew Broderick, who appears the more normal one to the mainstream audience, is very amusing. Griffin Dunne showed wonderful taste in directing this movie. It's interesting, witty, and the production values are good.
