Movie Reviews

Loved it - But where is the DVD????
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I first saw this movie back in the 80's and after all this time it doesn't lose it's appeal. The characters are very believable, and well acted. Stockard Channing gives a great performance as Susan's (Kate Nelligan) best friend. Many of the reviewer's state that this movie is a tear jerker, and it is! Even if you just watch the last ten minutes and nothing else you will need a full box of Kleenex! My only complaint is that it is not out on DVD yet, but this film is SO good that it's worth watching/owning on VHS - and that's comming from someone who won't buy anything on VHS anymore!!"
Excellent film!

"This is an excellent film with a wonderful performance by Kate Nelligan as a resolute and determined mother whose son is missing, without a trace. Judd Hirsch stars as the congenial detective investigating the case. A real tearjerker at times with a great ending, especially when the detective discovers the truth about young Alex' disappearance. The final few minutes are a bit contrived but just enjoy! This movie is worthy of anyones collection.
One of the most moving I have ever seen

"I'll say it right out, OK ?? I have seen this movie at least 5 times and cannot keep my eyes dry !! Kate Nelligan gives one of the most credible and most emotional portrayals I have ever seen, and Judd Hirsch gives a performance which matches, if not exceeds, than he gave in "Ordinary People". This was written to completely capture your attention by pulling at your emotions, and the stars of the movie do exactly that. Tell me your eyes are dry at the end of this movie and I won't believe you !!"
Wonderful Movie

"My husband and I caught this on cable the other night unfortuantely he had to leave for work so he wants to know how it ends.

When I first saw this movie I was about 12. I'm not sure why it effected me so. When I saw it a few nights ago I caught that the parents had been separated for only 3 months. I was thinking it had been a long time ago. The movie just drips with loneliness. The mother waking up in the bed by herself. Even though the son & mother have breakfast together you can't help but feel the loneliness.

Even though I cry everytime I see this movie I love it. I am also struck by the music. My husband laughed when the mother was practicing the piano. He said "no one plays like that." The mother was shown learning a new song note by note and as time went on she perfected it and played it beautifully.

This is a must see. I find myself searching for all of the movies I loved as a child and to my surprise other people are too. It's great when you can purchase a movie that you loved long ago."
