The Pageturner

New Perspective on Past Movie

As a child, I loved this film and watched it repeatedly. It made me laugh very much and I was fascinated with the story. Now, at age 19, I have begun to analyze the movie. It seems as if it is a watered down film about interracial dating, yet still enjoyable. Quite interesting. If these characters were real, they would've gotten a lot more opposition about their relationship than in the film. Other than that, I think the film has excellent character development. The grieving father and musician, a woman caught in between two worlds, and a child that wants a motherly figure, these characters and those around them shape the film. You will laugh, but above all, you will think and analyze.
