Something about it...
28 March 2007 | by See all my reviews

Something strange about the 80's; there was materialism and decadence, but stories were still written about the homeless, about career changes, about modeling.

This movie sort of encompasses all those stories, the young character at odds with her values, and the glamorous model (played by the then beautiful Wilhemina Model, Kim Waltrip).

It is basically a love story, with some lovely background music (Moody Blues: "Nights in White Satin"). There is a melancholy to it, and I am not sure if it is the innocence of the movie, or just the fact that we don't even see movies currently which are as basic as this. This is worth watching; the story is good, and I guess I am grieving that we no longer see such simple yet human stories as this in today's movies. 8/10.
