Trivia

For her role in this film, star Michelle Pfeiffer won the Silver Bear Award for Best Actress at the 43rd Berlin International Film Festival in 1993. Ironically, Denzel Washington, who withdrew from the lead male role of Paul Cater in this film, won the Best Actor award at the same fest for Spike Lee's Malcolm X (1992), for playing the real life person Malcolm X. Both that film and Love Field (1992) explore themes relating to racial issues. See more »

Deserving of Accolades and A Broader Audience
31 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

An obsessed beautician heads for DC when JFK is assassinated. Along the way, she loses her husband, but finds something within herself she never knew was there; courage and fortitude.

Fraught with dangers only our parents remember, this film shows you what the US was like back in the late 50's, early 60's. It also teaches us that we haven't changed that much, as a nation, in the last 50 years.

Michelle Pfeiffer, Dennis Haysbert, and Stephanie McFadden endear with their honesty in this gripping drama by Jonathan Kaplan (Project X, the Firm, and Bad Girls). The performances are heartening and lends us hope that things genuinely CAN improve in the future. Not necessarily that they will, but that it is possible, should we apply our hearts to the problem.

This is a great film, though you have to be in the right mood for it.

It rates an 8.2/10 from...
