There are actors, and then there are movie stars.
Except, sometimes the two can co-exist.
Paul Newman was an epic movie star, but that didn’t prevent him from being one of our finest actors.
This film, a small slice of joy about a man ambling through life, is a perfect example.
There are no big plot twists, and not much really happens.
But we care about the lives depicted because we care about the lovely exchanges between Newman and Jessica Tandy.
Or Newman’s flirty banter with Melanie Griffith.
If a movie could be a smile, this one fits the bill.
