A beautiful love story, about a young man, and an older woman
The story is about a young man ( Yuppie)who falls in love with a woman who
is 15 years his senior. A beautiful love story with lots of
They live in two totally different worlds. he's rich , she's poor.It
work. So she moves to NYC But his love is so true an deep. So when he finds
her they come back together. A perfectly happy end.
The reason why I watched this movie was because I'm truly one of the
Susan Sarandon fans. She shines absolutely beautiful in this movie.And
Spader has performed one of his bests roles ever.
my favourite scene is when Nora (Susan) meets one of Max(James)'s Friends,
Sherri.She asks Nora "you know our max is quite a catch. How Did you manage
it?" and Nora says:"I give a good b***job I guess" Sherri : Hmmmmm.. I bet
you do"and Nora answers: "And I bet you don't"
You must see the look on Sherri's face
I think it's a great movie because normally hollywood is afraid of a love
story about a young man and an older woman.There should be more of those
movies because some people think it's strange when a older woman has a love
relation with a much younger man. ( I've never thought it was strange and
I'm only a fifteen year old girl)
But most people find it absolutely normal when an old man has something
a much younger woman. So I think this movie is really important.
We can all learn something about it.
WILL MAKE YOU WANT TO GO OUT AND DATE AN OLDER WOMAN!
Wonderful romance and character study between two people who live on the
opposite sides of the tracks.Two strong but stereotypical people pair up
evolve into very un-stereotypical unit and try to function in a hostile
enviroment. The acting in the movie is so good it surpasses the diologue.
The loss and love Spader communicates with just his eyes is a sight to
behold and Sarandon projects a dichotomy of neediness and
This movie contains one of the best endings in movie history, right up
with Green Card. A truly uplifting movie that conveys joy, hope, and
victory. What more can a woman ask for? And James Spader is a hunk!!

Unlikely but hopeful romance
Having already commented on this one once, I had to comment again as I
just watched it again for the umpeenth time. I had rated this about an
8, it's actually more like a 9 and one of my top 50 movies ever. I know
everyone has a right to their opinion but this movie is so little known
I truly hope at least one person reads some POSITVE reviews on here and
gives it a shot.
I do NOT think Sarandon looked unattractive here as people have said
but if she did, it really doesn't matter because the focus of the story
has little to do with physical attractiveness. The theme here is
love-and loving who YOU want to love versus who your friends, family
and society wants you to. It's also about identity and about finding
out that the person you truly are maybe quite different then who you
always thought you were. The film brings to life the characters in the
amazing book(I'd recommend the book version of this as well, it's even
better then the film). Sarandon gives a luminous performance as Nora,
she's the only actress I could ever see in the role anyway. The film is
tragic, touching, gloriously acted and brings up some interesting
issues of love and identity. I'm amazed this pic isn't better known, I
agree very much with Ebert's review particularly(SPOILER)
The last scene that kind of does take credibility away fro the rest of
the pic but then again-it maybe a little to Hollywood but the movie did
(somewhat) follow the book's ending which was also positive although
nowhere near the film's last scene.
I would recommend this to everyone particularly Sarandon fans, fans of
the romance Genre, fans of Dramas in General or just people who like to
dig up films that are kind of little known. Every time I see this I
like it just a little bit more.
