One of those great little films you might have overlooked......
14 November 2018 | by ksdilauriSee all my reviews

.......and if you did, remedy that. The acting alone is worth investing the time. Bebe Neuwirth is an intelligent, truly unique actress---a fact supported by her many awards---and her work here is a joy to behold. She balances tender concern for the young serviceman, at the same time dealing with a complicated relationship with her offbeat husband (Peter Coyote). Coyote's character, frankly, is kind of a nut---but the actor's performance allows us to be sympathetic to him. The role of the sailor could very easily have been miscast or written one-dimensionally, but he's believable and the casting of Ethan Peck is perfect----he carries it off splendidly. This is worth a watch.
