Have you ever confused a dream with life? Or stolen something when you have the cash? Have you ever been blue? Or thought your train moving while sitting still? Maybe I was just crazy. Maybe it was the 60s. Or maybe I was just a girl... interrupted.

First the IMDb rating is much too low - duh! -- EVEN IF you overlook the near-perfect script, direction, casting, sets -- even if you overlook that the movie is engaging and solid on its own, you end up with the inescapable fact that, FROZEN FOR A BRIEF MOMENT IN TIME, you have in front of you two of the most perfect faces Hollywood has ever produced.
Forget Garbo. Forget Taylor. Forget the Alamo. How much of this already great film gives the viewer endless closeups of Ryder and Jolie? (Ryder, for some mysterious reason, seemingly at the end of her star run in Tinseltown, gives arguably the best performance of her life. Oh those cheekbones! Oh those eyes! And Jolie just before she became an action icon in the new century, deliberately underplaying the part so as not to steal from Ryder).
Classic film. See it once. See it often.
