26 October 1999 | Criz
An Absolute Treasure
One of the greatest and most wonderful surprises of 1999, "The Love Letter" is a sparkling little film. Held back by a remarkably asinine trailer--which manages to combine the three or four dull, brief moments in the movie--the picture is a warm-hearted, eminently watchable tale. I had assiduously avoided the flick because of that very trailer, but ended up having to watch "The Love Letter" on an 11 hour flight from Seoul to Vancouver. I could easily have watched it three times--it's that much fun.

Kate Capshaw is bent and broken-down but somehow manages to be both incredibly lovable and believable. Tom Everett Scott is absolutely priceless in his role as a confused young hunk. but any damage they may have done to the overall film is negated by the superb performances of Scott and Capshaw. Sure, it's not worthy of an Oscar. But neither was "Shakespeare in Love", and look what happened there.
