A subtle, intimate portrait with a marvelous Lori Singer
I truly loved this movie. It's one of those storytelling case where the drama surfaced from the soul and the intime connection between the characters. I love the fact that Michie Gleason has given the atmosphere an important role. I really feel every emotion about Roxy thanks to the subtle and delicate performance of Lori Singer. She has been terrific in movies like "Short Cuts" or "Trouble in mind", but here she let her inside beauty to come out with little touch of tenderness. Roxy is a child woman, who explores the passion and can't control it. But she loves her daughter and she is in the middle of a storm. I think miss Singer has done a wonderful job because you have empathy for Roxy.
It is also wonderful to see her interaction with the great Clu Gulager and Oscar winner Kathy Bates in a small, but pivotal role.
The music melts my heart. Kim Carnes song is so touching as well as the soundtrack. Summer Heat is a little gem.
