      50% 10 Reviews Tomatometer 47% 5,000+ Ratings Audience Score Movie star Roxy Carmichael is abandoning the bright lights of Hollywood, Calif. and returning to her small Ohio hometown -- at least long enough to dedicate a city building. And now the whole town of Clyde is bracing for Carmichael's return, most of all her now-married old flame Denton Webb (Jeff Daniels) and troubled teen Dinky Bossetti (Winona Ryder). An orphan with few friends, Dinky is convinced that Carmichael is her birth mother, and that the actress will reclaim her when she returns. Read More Read Less Watch on Peacock Stream Now

      Kirsten W This was one of my favorite movies back then. I started dreaming of getting a musician to name me in a song. John Mayer if you read this, my name is Kirsten. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 07/20/23 Full Review Steve D Ryder is really good but the rest is uncomfortable and unfunny. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review hayley b not that exciting of a film sadly, i love winona and only watched it for her but i didn't like this much, was pretty dull. it's one of those films ill watch once every 6 years because i forgot what happens.

      Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times There's enough material here for several movies, but none of them turns into this one. Rated: 2/4 Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Rene Jordan El Nuevo Herald (Miami) A film that doesn't bore, not even for a moment. [Full review in Spanish] Oct 26, 2022 Full Review Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat Spirituality & Practice Focuses on the adolescent struggle to define oneself and also speaks about honesty, risk, loneliness, and self-respect.
