A film that grabs you in the opening scene and won't let you go
8 September 2006 | by darlingmissmarpleSee all my reviews

One of the most unforgettable films I have ever seen. Everything about this mini series rates a+'s all the way. The writing, the sets, the filming, the directing and the acting. Bruce Boxleiter, Perry King,Edward Albert, and Sharon Gless are at their very best. The young Michael Nouri is gorgeous. This mini series follows a group of friends from Harvard through World War II and into their older years. With the additional time given by its being a mini series, the characters are well developed and richly played. From the opening scenes it reaches out and grabs you and you are quickly vested in the destinies of these characters and the different ways their lives progress as they age. You experience all the emotions of lives lived during one of the most dynamic times to live in America. You may love them or hate them, but you can't let them go and they will stay with you forever after. I long for this mini series to be released on DVD
