Made for television, Demme's adaptation of a Kurt Vonnegut story is totally delightful. Sarandon is the new girl in town who joins an amateur dramatics group and falls for local star Walken. The only trouble is that, offstage, he is terminally shy. Finally, of course, she gets her man, but not before Demme has fleshed out the slim plot with vivid, likeable characters (both leads are superb), and a great deal of charm and wit. One of his very best.
