| One of those great little films you might have overlooked......
.......and if you did, remedy that. The acting alone is worth investing the time. Bebe Neuwirth is an intelligent, truly unique actress---a fact supported by her many awards---and her work here is a joy to behold. She balances tender concern for the young serviceman, at the same time dealing with a complicated relationship with her offbeat husband (Peter Coyote). Coyote's character, frankly, is kind of a nut---but the actor's performance allows us to be sympathetic to him. The role of the sailor could very easily have been miscast or written one-dimensionally, but he's believable and the casting of Ethan Peck is perfect----he carries it off splendidly. This is worth a watch.
