      Audience Member This is a fantastic film, it shows just what the world needs now, compassion and understanding of the invisible illness and showing that friendship has no boundaries. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Cast: Beau Bridges, Reese Witherspoon, Patricia Arquette, Susan Blakely, William McNamara, Norman Max Maxwell, Collin Wilcox Paxton, Richard K. Olsen Director: Diane Keaton Summary: Diane Keaton directs this touching drama about a brother and a sister who befriend Alice, an epileptic forced to live in a barn, and decide to help her discover a kinder, more forgiving world. My Thoughts: "A sweet, touching, and sometimes harsh film. The way Alice is living and being treated is awful and some of the things her "father" does to her is hard to watch. Patricia Arquette does a fantastic job bringing Alice to life. Watching how everything was brand new for Alice was a joy. Makes you miss the innocence of childhood. Reese Witherspoon shows off her great talent at a young age which shows why she's so great today. The movie is set in the 30's and won't be to everyones style, but I enjoyed it. I didn't even know Diane Keaton had directed a film, so this was a nice surprise. I think she did well. It wasn't great though. I didn't care for the opening scene and how a scene would abruptly stop and change. Besides that, it was a good job on her part. It's a great cast with a great story about how a kind gesture can improve and change a persons life. See it if you get the chance." Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member Good story, but perhaps unnecessarily graphic at times. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member I have this on a dual movie disc. The other movie on the disc is: * Almost Perfect Bank Robbery (1998) which stars Brooke Shields. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member This was a cute movie that I have never heard of before. I enjoyed. It's perfect movie to watch on rainy day. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member My all-time-fav movie, the caring and friendship offered by two decent and compassionate sibling teenagers transforms a severely abused and neglected hearing-impaired girl into a beautiful young woman.

      Janet Branagan Apollo Guide While it carries some strong performances, the script and direction (by actress Diane Keaton) are far from superior. Rated: 67/100 Oct 15, 2003 Full Review Read all reviews
