Nobody's Fool ★★★★

This was a surprisingly well acted and written melodrama about the themes of age and it’s effects on inter generational relationships.

It told a really compelling story matched by the obviously flawless Paul Newman. It was at times very campy and fitting of the mid-90s heart tugging story. But it wore it well and in spite of its well aged feel, it still followed smoothly enough to seem witty and worthwhile. There were a lot of story arcs going in all different directions and it made this a bit tedious; however, they all wrap up nicely.

I will say that the introduction of lots of characters felt very presumptuous. Almost forcing you to care quickly and in multiplicity. Really strange, and somewhat naive, but fitting of the era so I am not too upset about it.

Definitely worth the watch, if not for Paul Newman alone!
