Well-meaning seemingly autobiographical piece...
12 April 2001 | by dwpollarSee all my reviews

1st watched 4/12/2001 - 5 out of 10 (Dir-Dyan Cannon): Well-meaning seemingly autobiographical piece about the real Dyan Cannon, played by the real person, as well as written and directed. This is I think where the movie went wrong. It's too much of her and very little of anyone else. The supporting players do not give much to the movie, and they all seem to be caricatures of her perspective on them. Dyan actually does some of her best dramatic work which really should have been an opening for her playing more down-to-earth parts. But I have yet to see them come for her. And I still don't understand the title? It started out being about a little girl losing her innocence but that theme wasn't followed through, instead we got nutcase Dyan and her rehabilitation being the central theme. Nice try, but not quite enough.
