“OK, if youu0026#39;re in the mood for a slightly nutty romantic comedy, go for this one.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe subplot, with Jennifer Tillyu0026#39;s performance as a shy, sheltered blind girl, reluctantly coming out of her shell, is totally luminous (sorry u0026#39;bout the cliche, but no other word fits), without resorting to the corniness of u0026quot;A Patch of Blue.u0026quot; To me, it was actually a more affecting story than the main plotline.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe other actors do a great job, especially Brenda Blethyn (what do they teach in British acting class?), Martha Plimpton, and Jayne Adams. The story moves along nicely, and one event seems to flow naturally into another.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eMy guess is, if there had been an A-List Hollywood star on board, like, eg, Bruce Willis, this little film might have gotten quite a bit more recognition. But the chemistry would have been completely different.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eBring a date and some popcorn, and enjoy.”
