Ron Howard’s a genius. That ensemble cast is stellar. From scene to scene I can’t even decide who’s more perfect.
Jason Robards? The only movie I like more of his is “Something Wicked This Way Comes.”
Mary Steenburgen? Perfection.
Dianne Wiest? There’s a reason she got an Oscar nomination for this film.
Keanu Reeves? The scene where he explains to Dianne Wiest why her son is upset and depressed is freaking brilliant.
Tom Hulse? Just wanna slap his stupid punk ass up one side and down the other. Only his role in “Amadeus” is better.
Not a single bad scene in the entire film.
Agree with me or resign yourself to being wrong.
