| Finally!
I had pretty much stopped going to movies about twenty years ago. You can only tolerate a certain number of explosions, flying car wrecks and leading men that look like the baby-faced sissies in your high school classes. Skip science fiction and animated cartoons there isn't much left for real movie buffs. This weekend I was persuaded to watch "Heart, Baby!" Finally I was entertained for an entire movie! The actors looked like their roles were written specifically for each of them. A great story! A range of emotions are evoked from the viewer and there is not a lagging part in the entire feature. I live just across the state line from Tennessee and there isn't a character in the movie with whom I couldn't identify and relate. At the risk of sounding chauvinistic, I was pleased to see a woman writer and director open the doors to male characters in such an all-male environment of men's prison and the boxing ring. Quite an accomplishment and we're all better off for it. I have bought the movie and it's going to be making the circle of family and friends. An absolute joy!
