Quotes

Daniel Michon: [chasing after Lauren outside the adult theater] I've never seen one of them before either, I wouldn't have taken you. It isn't like that. That's something else. It isn't love.

Innocence personified
17 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

There are no words to express the real beauty of this movie, nor the depth of its import. There are those who have lived in such innocence and courage as the children in this movie, but in this new millennium such would be as rare as purity itself. After 106 minutes of near flawless value, it makes one wonder what has happened to wonder and gentleness; it seems they have journeyed far away, taking with them respect and graciousness. Such a treasure as this film makes one long for a time of civility and trust. Diane Lane had an auspicious beginning here, though too many of her later films lacked the substance of this one. Sally Kellerman does what she does best, and Arthur Hill seems the father of whom all daughters dream. By all means, rent this film and share the adventure!
