REVIEWS

Review by banion48 (posted on 4-Apr-2005)

Kevin Spacey again regales audiences with a unique and melancholic story of everyday man's life -- the trials, tribulations and small successes each person enjoys. This time he is playing a dim-witted, lovable oaf named Quoyle who falls in love with the wrong sort of girl. Sleep-walking through life, Quoyle's only joys are his daughter, Bunny, and the manic love his wife gives him. When she burns out and his father dies his Aunt comes from the far North to express her sympathies. She finds a man undone. Taking him back to Newfoundland, she forces him to set up a new life and find a little bit of self-confidence.
