What can you say about a twenty-five-year-old girl who died? That she was beautiful and brilliant? That she loved Mozart and Bach, the Beatles, and me?

I was dragged to this movie by my sorority friends when it opened in the theatres. I squirmed in my seat through the movie. Thank god for raisinettes. I kept expecting it to go somewhere, and then it ended and I stood up and said, "What the hell was that?" This script and direction of this movie, along with over the top acting, could not be saved not matter how much schmaltzy piano music you jammed into it. The plot line was the usual plot line of the rich boy loves a girl from the other side of the tracks and only their love will make it work. No, not even killing off Ali McGraw at the end could give this piece of dreck any credibility.
Utter crap from beginning to end.
