One of the most romantic movies I’ve ever seen — perhaps more so because it is so self-awaringly romantic, maybe even a little embarrassed for being so romantic. One could argue Ethan Hawke is a tad obnoxious, but handsome 23 year old men ARE obnoxious. This movie presents things just as they are supposed to be. I was also reminded, when I heard the closing credits’ use of Kathy McCarty’s version of Daniel Johnston’s “Livin’ Life,” that this what turned me on to Johnston’s music.
