Impeccably acted; visually stimulating. Every scene, every frame, contains verbal and/or visual perfection!
Musical score, photography and perfectly edited dialogue create a "symphony" of emotions with absolute reality!
Demonstrates pressures placed on children by obsessive parents to excel at spelling words, those certain never to come up again in a lifetime. Brittle tensions captured in clear, moving writing.
Beautifully written old classic; moving story filled with happiness, sadness and surprises.
Whose Life Is It Anyway?(1991)
Controversial, riveting film incorporating heavy themes interspersed with nicely paced humor. Great performances and script.
