influenced woman meets Mona Lisa Vito meets Cyrano de Bergerac meets Anakin Skywalker meets Opie's brother

Gena Rowlands strikes me as the sort of person whom it's impossible to dislike in a movie, and her son's "Unhook the Stars" affirms that. She plays a straight-laced widow who gets a new lease on life when she befriends the wayward woman (Marisa Tomei) across the street. Lots of lessons are going to arise from this friendship, all of it well done in this movie.

The movie will also be of note for an early appearance of Jake Lloyd, soon to be known as a prepubescent Darth Vader in a certain George Lucas movie.

Not a cookie-cutter comedy-drama...but not much of anything else either

Gena Rowlands, sturdy and glowing, gives an admirable performance in an unconvincing role. She plays an elderly widow who forms a shaky bond with her neighbors, a hard-partying single woman (Marisa Tomei) and her young son. Directed and co-written by Rowlands' real-life son Nick Cassavetes, who gives his talented mom some lovely scenes to play, the film thankfully does not pander to commercial tastes. Still, it's too bad the language is so trashy--and the Tomei character so unappealing--making the second-half of the picture tough to get through. Supporting player Gerard Depardieu, who also co-produced, has a surprisingly sweet role as a lovestruck trucker, and the memorable finale is thoughtful and well-realized. ** from ****

Unhook the Stars- Needs A Closer: Where Did Mildred Go?

The film starts out very well with Mildred's daughter, a rebellious teenager, leaving her widowed mother's home. Mildred forms a bond with next door neighbor, played in a wonderful performance by Marisa Tomei, a crude low-life with an even lower-life husband. He walks out on her and Mildred agrees to watch their young child while Tomei works.

This all sounds good. Mildred finds romance with Gerard Depardieu at a bar while with the Tomei character. Mildred's son and daughter-in-law want her to join them in San Francisco. Fine.

Suddenly the writing goes awry. Tomei reconciles with her husband who comes back as a changed man. Mildred suddenly sells her house and by the picture's end, we don't know where she is going to. Also, since the Tomei and Mildred's daughter had so much in common, it would have been nice to see them in the same scenes together.
