ALWAYS (Theatrical Release USA 1989)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.5|5.0 Starsìììì

Always—classic, lovable story—utilizes the talents of Richard Dreyfus and John Goodman to tell its story. John Goodman seems to take portions of the script and completely embody it as his own…wonderful acting. The script concept is fresh, well-written, loaded with heart. WOW! What a hidden gem! It may not be a 5-star movie, but it is a ‘do NOT miss it’ film that is more than worth watching. It is a good addition to the home film library and has re-watchable status. Just wonderful entertainment.
