The picture features no credit for a music composer. The film is basically scoreless, except for pieces of piano music interludes. Some of the characters sing songs, and there are a couple of soundtrack tracks, including one that plays over the closing credits. See more »
The selective rain that seems to hit the actors only is evidently not falling on the background, which remains inexplicably dry. See more »
Well done, realistic film. Though Keaton gives her usual strong performance. And Finney does a good job of acting as the man coming apart (he reminds me of Richard Burton in Night of the Iguana). But the real story here for me was between Dana Hill's character and both her parents. I am not too familiar with Dana Hill, though I somehow recognize her from something. But in this film she does a marvelous job of showing the pain felt by children from parental separation. Another thing about this film is that it somehow really manages to remind me of the late 70s/early 80s. A side note for compaction equipment fans: check out that Dynapac roller!!! No idea which model is being used to compact the tennis court. But it looks like a great machine.
