A good book is like an old friend. No matter how much time has passed, you can always go back and it will be waiting.
In New York City, Finnegan Bell (Ethan Hawke) has been in love with Estella (Gwyneth Paltrow) since he was a boy. But her ice queen adopted mother, Ms. Dinsmoor (the late Anne Bancroft) has taught Estella to keep all men at a distance. When a mysterious stranger gives Finnegan the opportunity to see his dreams become reality, Finnegan will use this opportunity to see another long-held dream come to light: render Estella as in love with him as he is with her.
Will Finnegan finally have the woman of his dreams by his side or will she continue to reject him?
I have not seen this move in a very long time. As I seem to recall, with the exception of being set in 1998, the movie is true to the book. And there is a lot of green.
Do I recommend it? Why not?
