Michael Douglas once said of this film: "First couple of times I read the script, I just burst into tears. It has some great moments - 'kvells', I call them. It's a good story, well constructed, well written, clean and simple, healthy and wholesome and kinda sweet. A classic, old-fashioned love story, too, I think, and I'm a soft touch for emotion. I like to see people who aren't afraid to show emotion, which is the antithesis of the Hollywood hard-ass character." See more »
