A beautifully silly and meditative movie, one of my favorites to capture the hard-won peace of coming to the end of things. Reminds me of graduating high school and one of the most special movie-watching times of my life. Reminds me of—and get this—being there.
Birthday watch for a favorite Miss Doris Day, champion of my early classic Hollywood days and the eternal spoonful of sugar to help the medicine that is life go down. As for this movie? Just once I’d like to see justice served to the older sisters of pain-in-the-ass brothers.
