'That Night'
(C. Thomas Howell, Juliette Lewis, Helen Shaver, Eliza Dushku, et al / DVD / PG-13 / (1993) 2016 / 20th Century Fox)

Overview: Set in 1961, this bittersweet coming-of-age story follows special friendships, first love and a long summer night that changes the lives of three people forever.

DVD Verdict: 'That Night' is an extremely sensitive and touching film about childhood, and a youngster's need to be "saved" from her own age of innocence. Juliette Lewis is fantastic as vampy young woman in 1960s suburbia whose affair with a greasy-haired rebel becomes the focal point for a little girl who lives across the street.

The film's dreamy/quirky tone is reminiscent of 'Men Don't Leave', and its depiction of a big-hearted kid trying to connect with a world much larger than she is both nostalgic and sympathetic. Filled with small, but wonderful little touches, thoughtful nuances and a quiet, sweet ending, it is also chock full of before-they-were-famous appearances also! Well worth-seeing, 'That Night' is not only the most perfect film to settle in with on a Friday/Saturday night, but this may well be the best performance yet from Juliette Lewis. She is, in a word, flawless. This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.78:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
