Is she or isn’t she? – A must for Meg Ryan devotees
What if two disparate people meet and wonder what it would be like to be each other, if only for a second? Craig Lucas’ economical script and Norman Rene’s straightforward direction provide a glimpse into that fantasy. Just saw it again on cable and I cannot get over how I identify with the characters. What holds us back from exploring and celebrating “the miracle of another human being”?
Alec Baldwin gives us a performance where he does more than read lines in his scratchy baritone and Ms. Ryan? She is simply luminous in this film.
Rent it or catch it the next time around on cable. Don’t be afraid…
Unique, Romantic, Odd
“For better or for worse.” Cliché but seldom are we tested. This is a very unusual story. You think you’re watching a romantic comedy at first, albeit one with ominous overtones. It then veers into a very mystical love story. In my opinion, both Alec Baldwin and Meg Ryan give the best performances of their careers – and are both absolutely stunning-looking and charismatic. The tone is somewhat “Witches of Eastwick” – though not quite as supernatural – and a little bit “Death Becomes Her” – but less absurdist. The supporting players are all excellent, albeit in very lean roles. A few things to keep in mind: the movie is adapted from a 1990 play and can seem a bit stagey at times. Alec Baldwin recreates the role he had created on Broadway. (Mary Louise Parker had created the role on Broadway but the studio insisted on Ryan – Ryan was restrained and very good but her participation gave the impression to audiences that they were in rom-com territory: expectations were set – then dashed – as this is not a rom-com and is at times is very disturbing. Although she was not well-known at the time, MLP may have made this film remembered more fondly.) The writer/director team is also the same as the Broadway play and the writer and director had previously collaborated on Longtime Companion. That is important because deep- down Prelude to a Kiss is a metaphor for loving someone whose clock is ticking – loving someone despite the illness and decay. About true love – and its limits – and appreciating what we have while we have it – it’s a little gem of a movie although you need to suspend your disbelief and focus on the three (yes, three) lead performances.
