Reviews
Mine: A wonderful movie in many ways. Quite funny, very insightful, touching and the acting is top notch. Wonderful view of NYC as well. Cher is a good actress, who knew!
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: A gem of a movie that unfolds like a good play, without ever seeming static or stagy. Cher plays an independent young widow who agrees to marry an older man (Aiello) --and then finds herself inexorably drawn to his misfit younger brother (Cage). John Patrick Shanley's script is brimming with wonderful vignettes and acute observations about Italian-American families. Cher, Dukakis (terrific as the mother), and Shanley won Oscars for their work.
