Review There's nothing daring about it, but it offers a solid emotional core and there is a touching payoff. The movie's drama is a little on the soggy side, and that's what keeps me from giving a hearty recommendation. Few who see it will regret the experience, but this isn't the sort of movie that cries out to be seen. As diversions go, it's mostly pleasant, and I suppose there's nothing terribly wrong with that.

Review There's a lot of flashy acting going, notably by Travolta, who has not been more engaging on-screen in a decade, and by newcomer Barrett, a willowy Aussie who, as a woman living with the specter of death, gives the film's most complete performance.

Review Phoenix, Travolta, Barrett and the others are given characters with dimension, so that what happens depends on their decisions, not on the plot. As I said, I was surprisingly affected by the film. After I left the screening, I walked a while by the river, and sat and thought, and was happy not to have anything that had to be done right away.
