This review is from: A Perfect World [1993] [DVD] (DVD)
It's on watching movies like this that I feel sorry for Kevin Costner. He deserves so much more credit than he gets. In 'A perfect world' he plays the role of 'Butch', an escaped convict who takes a young boy hostage. Phil is a 7yr old without a father and a mother with strict rules due to their religion. Soon he and Butch begin to forge a strong bond which is simply born of Butch treating Phil with the love he wishes his father showed. It's a very touching relationship to watch grow.
However it doesn't go overboard in making us forget that Butch is still a criminal with a goal. He steals, kills and hurts people as and when necessary.
Clint Eastwood and Laura Dern play the cop and criminalist who are out to recapture Butch but in my opinion this takes a backseat to the rest of the movie. It's very oldstyle cowboy talk from Eastwood while Dern fights her way into being recognised for her talents.

This is a wonderful movie which I would recommend to anyone. It explores the humanity in all of us irrespective of past crimes and titles.
