Product Description

Product Description

Waitress Caroline (Marisa Tomei) is superficially confident and outgoing, but deep down inside feels insecure about relationships and has had a string of failed romances. One night whilst walking home her reclusive busboy colleague Adam (Christian Slater), who is secretly smitten with her, saves her from being attacked. Caroline is secretly intrigued by her shy saviour and tries to break into his solitary world - which is difficult at first but eventually blossoms into romance.

From the Back Cover

Christian Slater and Academy Award winner Marisa Tomei deliver brilliant performances in this beautifully-crafted modern-day romance about two lost souls who find love through each other.

Tomei portrays Caroline, a diner waitress who is consistently (and miserably) unlucky in love. Slater is Adam, the diner's reclusive busboy who harbours a secret crush on Caroline, yet is too shy to speak to her. But all that changes one cold night, when Caroline finds herself in a life threatening situation on her walk home and Adam appears out of the shadows to rescue her. Intrigued by her unlikely knight in shining armour, Caroline tenderly breakes through into his lonely world. Together, the two forge a bond of trust and understanding that ulimately blossoms into one of cinema's most unforgettable love stories.

Lending her unique brand of energy and talent, Rosie Perez co-stars as Caroline's fellow waitress and best friend in this touchingly honest blend of realism and humour that works magnificently because its heart is in the right place.

5.0 out of 5 stars the sweetest film ever made 4 May 2005
when i watched this film i expected a complete rom-com cliche however this film had me on a emmotional rollercoaster from happy to sad. although the ending had me near hysterical i could watch it again and again. superbly acted and directed this film should be mandatory for emmotional education. if this doesnt make you cry then you need studied!

I first watched this film back in 1998 on TV and recently tracked it down on DVD and bought a copy.

It is a beautiful story of a tentative romance between an unlikely couple with Caroline, the unlucky in love waitress, and Adam, the kitchen hand, who is a shy, withdrawn individual who admires Caroline from afar.

I guess the reason the film appeals to me is because you can relate to the characters, their ordinary lives and the positive message regarding relationships and love. The pacing of the film is perfect, its small town setting is convincing and the supporting cast if a little sparse, also make their contribution.

A great film.

4.0 out of 5 stars A bit far-fetched, but extremely good drama. 5 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This film, is the best I've ever seen in ages! Considering I have a very short memory, I remember this film throughout. Do you know when you watch a film which is sad, at the end a lump begins to emerge in your throat, then you are choked. You think that if you cry, the lump will vanish, but it makes you even more emotional. That's exactly how it made me feel. I thought the ending was a bit unpredictable, but I knew that something along the lines of that was going to take place. This is the best film since I saw 2 particularly excellent movies: "The Champ", and "Imitation of Life".
Excellent picture

4.0 out of 5 stars My favourite romantic comedy-drama. 19 Sep 2003
Bittersweet, tragic and affecting.
Marisa Tomei gives a heart-rending performance as unlucky-in-love Caroline, who falls for terminally ill Christian Slater.
Even Rosie Perez is funny and non-annoying as Marisa's best friend.
If this doesn't make you laugh and cry you're made of stone. :)

4.0 out of 5 stars A heart warming tale 28 April 2003
This film offers more than is first expected, superb performances by a young Christian Slater and a stunning Marisa Tomei make the film. The plot is reasonable and quite traditional of this type of film but the script was strong however quite cliched in places. I believe this film really is one for the ladies although I found it quite enthrallling. This really is a beautiful film which provides hours of entertainment which is to be enjoyed by all. Buy it, rent it, it is a wonderful film.

5.0 out of 5 stars ROMANTIC...POIGNANT...HEARTBREAKING... 23 Mar 2003
Format:VHS Tape
This film is an unlikely romance that works on many levels. Deftly directed by Tony Bill who shows a penchant for handling delicate sentiments as if they were gossamer threads, this film is truly one of the most truly romantic that I have seen. That this is so, despite that many of the most romantic moments take place in a downtown Minneapolis diner, a dingy basement apartment, the front porch of a house in a blue collar, working class neighborhood, or in an old dilapidated clunker of a car, is a testament to the ability of the director.
Marisa Tomei is luminous as Caroline, the Minneapolis waitress with self-esteem problems who looks for love in all the wrong places, before finding it right where she works. She imbues Caroline with just the right measure of street smarts, working class edge, and little girl vulnerability. She is a needy, though nice, young woman who desperately wants to love and be loved. Unfortunately, the guys she meets tend to treat her as a one night stand. The sensitive and romantic Adam, the reticent and quirky busboy who works the midnight shift with Caroline, is just what the doctor ordered.
Christian Slater gives his best performance ever as Adam who becomes Caroline's veritable knight in shining armor. An orphan with a disability that he cloaks with an intriguing story, Adam is a true romantic hero. His quiet sincerity, delicate sensibilities, and apparent contentment in worshipping from afar touch Caroline, tugging at her heart strings. You see, he treats her as if she were a princess rather than as a strumpet. Christian Slater's sensitive and moving performance in a difficult role strikes just the right note. I would bet that nearly every woman who watches this film succumbs to his charms and finds herself half falling in love with him.
