      Steve D Simple yes but ok because of the cast. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 09/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Very rarely do I write a movie with a five out of five but this one deserves it There is absolutely nothing wrong with it One of the best movies I have ever seen. yes I highly recommend it James Welch, Henderson., Arkansas, February 8, 2023. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member Good movie, sort Mayberry -ish? Notice the fly when she leans in for a kiss, wonder why they did not fix that? Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Ken R The Simple Life Of Noah Dearborn – What Makes Us the Way We Are Sidney Poitier is perfect as the reclusive Noah Dearborn, with all support cast doing what they needed agreeably. As might be expected within this genre, the script tended to be a little heavy on the ‘bad' guys (but thankfully not all). Some changes in certain character developments might have played out better if it was just a bit longer in running time (?) There were also a couple of dramatic situations that seemed to be perhaps underdeveloped or not followed through enough. All that aside, this is an agreeable story with enough interesting situations, and good relationships to keep most viewers engaged throughout. Mary-Louise Parker does surprisingly well with her important, pivotal psychologist character. Diane Wiest was nominated for an Emmy. & it's all very good to look at photographically. A thoughtful Afternoons watch. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 08/04/21 Full Review Audience Member I absolutely loved this movie when I saw it in 1999 and have been keeping my eye out for it since then. It was just such a good story with lots of great actors and heart. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Frances H Warm, endearing drama about the simple life and how to {or not to). Love Diaane Wiest's smile. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 07/30/14 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
