The film gives me the willies, to put it simply. If there is such a thing as time travel, this movie is it.
Love Sigourney. She eats up film with a ferocity that always is a joy to behold.
I read an interview at the Advocate online tonight where she talked about being in Bobby's bedroom and that it was important to 'get it right'. Well. I can see that she does from the get-go.
Bet I will cry that the rest of you. And get mad. All over again. For the years lost in pain and fear.
As hard as it may be, at some point you should try watching it in one sitting. I was getting interrupted a lot and I felt like I didn't get the full effect, so I'm going to watch it again soon. I can see why that would be hard for many, like you though.
Let us know what you think of it.
