Reviews
Mine: This is one of two movies that I have ever seen with Sally Field that I liked. Wonderful, slow, gentle romance. Garner is the man! Highly recommended.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Young divorce (with 12-year-old son) makes fresh start in small Arizona community, where she's attracted to older, laid-back, widowed pharmacist--and vice versa. Charming, easygoing comedy written by Irving Ravetch and Harriet Frank, Jr. (from Max Schott's novella), with Garner in a standout performance as Murphy, the last of the rugged individualists. In fact, this earned him his first Oscar nomination.
