This movie has moved me since it first came out in the 1980's. The performances- particularly by Cher and Eric Stoltz as Rusty and Rocky Dennis- are fantastic, the camera work (by the great Lazlo Kovacs) fluid and superb, the make up won an academy award, the music perfect, and the story, well, it's almost too good to be true. It's real life we're watching here, and knowing that it's also a true story makes it all the more touching and wonderful. I watched it with my boyfriend, then my husband, and now with my children. It's a simple tale of triumph of the spirit, but it goes deep and really stays with you if you let it. If you haven't seen this movie yet, go out and rent it tonight, you won't be disappointed.......
