| Totally worthwhile to watch - thank you!
I'm one of the millions who fell in love with these actors years ago, and it was especially wonderful to see Robin Wright and Winona Ryder. LOVE the climactic scene between those two - when Pippa is speaking with her son and Sandra is there and - well, I won't spoil it! Very funny. Great to see Keanu again in an ordinary role, I got so used to Neo/Matrix Keanu, this was a treat for him to play just an average messed up person. I've loved Alan Arkin since WAIT UNTIL DARK - you scared the crap outta me as a child!! Funny thing was, I thought you were Jerry Lewis back then, I was so young, and you looked similar, and it creeped me out, and for a long long time, I couldn't like Jerry Lewis because he was such a bad guy in my mind...grew up and found out it was YOU!! By then, I was mature enough to understand acting. I'll have you know that WAIT UNTIL DARK is in my Top 5 movies of all time, probably #2, and also in my Top 5 is THE PRINCESS BRIDE.

THE PRIVATE LIVES OF PIPPA LEE has some memorable lines of dialogue! I won't spoil that experience either - it's a treat to hear them in context for the first time. Great work, Rebecca Miller! The mother of Pippa and how she affected her daughter makes Pippa a fascinating protagonist. I love her struggle, it's such a non-struggle and yet so real and painful a conflict.

Great work, all of you! APPLAUSE!!
