      David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...a predictably slow-moving drama that grows more and more absorbing as it progresses... Rated: 3/4 Feb 13, 2022 Full Review Dennis Harvey 48 Hills This Manic Pixie Dream Girl prototype is like a puppy, unruly but adoring and adorable, as well as clothing-resistant. The May-December "now romance" was poorly received then, and today is pretty much unwatchable. Dec 4, 2020 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy What's remarkable about the film is that the love story never feels offensive, exploitative, or icky; instead, it's intelligent, believable, and sympathetic. Rated: 3/4 Aug 31, 2020 Full Review Jeffrey M. Anderson Combustible Celluloid Looks like some remnant from the hippie days. But what a surprise to see that Breezy is really quite touching and even delightful. Rated: 3.5/4 Aug 29, 2020 Full Review Bernard Drew Gannett News Service Things do get a bit better for [Holden], if not for us. Oct 2, 2019 Full Review Fernando F. Croce CinePassion A bit of low-key captivation, specifically Californian yet curiously Gallic Mar 23, 2011 Full Review Read all reviews

      Eye C Without knowing what's this about, at first feels odd, but at the end it's a cute movie, a Romantic Comedy. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 09/02/23 Full Review Steve D Too dated to work at all. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 08/04/23 Full Review r 9 A sweet flick featuring William Holden and Kay Lenz. The two leads come across very well and are both charming, I enjoyed both of their performances - with Lenz narrowly edging Holden out, if I had to split them. The story begins a bit iffy but does end up coming out as pleasant. Of course age gap love can be off-putting in film, but as long as it's done correctly then it can work - evidently. Clint Eastwood directs but doesn't feature in a main role, though does have a few second cameo - one that is easy to spot, if you keep close enough attention. The support cast, while nothing standout, are all solid. 'Breezy' is apparently one of Eastwood's lesser seen films, as shown by it having less than 2,000 ratings here on Letterboxd. I guess it's not for everyone, but I'd recommend it - the pacing isn't perfect, but it isn't anything that drags at all. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Nice one.... Will not frustrate anyone.. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review dave s Clint Eastwood's Breezy is a pleasant enough May-December romance but fails to do anything to separate itself from countless other romances of the same type. Frank Harmen (William Holden) is a middle-aged real estate agent, contentedly living alone after divorcing his wife. Breezy (Kay Lenz) is a free-spirited hippy searching for meaning in life. They meet. They become friends. They fall in love. They shock his friends and anyone else they come in contact with. It's all very nice, but there is nothing that makes it particularly memorable, other than a fine performance from Holden and some sobering dialogue ("nobody matures…they just grow old.") Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Lovely film about love and life, older man made to feel young again. Sad too. Great performances.
