Oren Little has turned his back on all his neighbors and shunned the notion of being kind to others after the death of his wife. Next door neighbor Leah has put her soul, and her tears, into her stagnant singing career after the death of her husband. But then Oren's son shows up needing Oren to take care of his daughter Sarah. Oren has no patience for children, Leah never had any of her own, but 9-year-old Sarah just might be the spark that allows these two lonely souls to turn their home into a Little Shangri-La.Written by
Well, finally a movie for us adults with no F words, car chases, explosions, vampires, aliens or other 'special effects'....Great....AND SO IT GOES isn't the best film of the year and yes, it does have its clichés, but it's a wonderful film just the same. Michael Douglas has rarely been better and Diane Keaton....is well...Diane Keaton...but a little less quirky than usual. Surprised how well she sings. A few heart tugging scenes, some laughs and serious moments make this a must see for the 'older generation' I"m afraid the younger generation would be bored and hoping for some big car crash or super-hero to invade the area. And heavens to betsy...no nude scenes!!! Story is very similar to AS GOOD AS IT GETS, with a few twists. But that's OK. Just enjoy this fine film for what it is. A feel gooder!!!
