Quietly charming, quite close to the real post-stroke Kirk Douglas
A quietly charming film that starts slow and builds: Father (Dan Ackroyd) and son (Corbin Allred) take Grandpa (Kirk Douglas) along on a vacation trip, despite the fact that Gramps has had a stroke and his health–physical and mental–is in question. Those who’ve read Kirk’s books, “Climbing the Mountain” and “My Stroke of Luck” will realize just how many of Kirk’s real experiences have been written into the role, especially his continuing efforts to improve his damaged speech. (Who will ever forget the 1995 Academy Awards, when Kirk, just weeks after the stroke, came out to accept his honorary Oscar, and forced recognizable speech out of a mouth that was, at the time, very much a ruined instrument?) The film begins with a uneasy tenseness that makes it hard to enjoy, but this moderates as we come to know the characters, and a certain largeness of spirit appears when the three generations enter a brothel, run by Lauren Bacall, whose screen magic hasn’t diminished one little bit. Incidentally, this is only the second film Douglas and Bacall have made together; the first was “Young Man With a Horn” in 1949. Does that mean we have to wait until 2O49 for them to do it again?
Lauren and Kirk are wonderful on screen together!
The movie is super and very sentimental. I especially love the chemistry on the screen between Lauren and Kirk. It really is touching and makes the movie unique. A very interesting story plot –kind of a chick flick FOR MEN and women believe it or not. Great movie!!! 🙂
