The drama presents a unique and unexpected view of the American experience in the Vietnam War, blending humor, tragedy and terror. At the same time, it dramatizes the story of the Vietnamese in a way not previously explored in television.
The story will follow "Jin and Clara, two soul revivers who have the ability to move between the worlds of the living and the dead and to bring certain people back whose mission on Earth was not complete at the time of their demise.
I happen to be a fan of this movie, which I saw when it was originally on television, way back when. Dyan Cannon is a beautiful, glamorous riot in this story of the woman who has the best of both worlds - on two coasts. In New York, she's a successful fashion designer who wears gorgeous clothes and has her hair in an upsweep. She lives in a a gorgeous apartment with her upright, maybe somewhat uptight businessman husband, played by Barry Newman.
On the west coast, her hair is loose around her shoulders, she wears casual clothes, and she hangs out with a young, hippie-ish artist, Hart Bochner, as she eats popcorn and lounges in the hot tub. She's a fashion designer out there, too. And she sort of marries him, making her a bigamist.
Cannon transforming herself on those many coast to coast flights is a delight as she tries to have it all. She is ably supported by Sylvia Sidney as her mother and Barry Newman as her New York husband.
The movie is not only madcap but serious when the character has to do some real soul-searching. All in all, it's very enjoyable film and if it comes around, don't miss it.
