A Beautiful Coming of Age
We never get to see the two main characters in the movie go to War. This world war 3 setting coming of age drama is not so much about the war over in Japan but the war on the home front. Growing up in 1943 in small town California, searching for love and meaning. Sean Penn is great in his role. Even more, Nicolas Cage is better as his close friend and side kick. Whether for comic relief of ream moments of edgy drama, Cage delivers. Also, a surprise in the movie is the performance of Elizabeth McGovern who is always beautiful. The three quickly discover life as they grow up before the two boys are shipped out to the Pacific. Michael Madsen and Crispin Glover pop into the movie with small roles. A nice movie, I wasn’t expecting much until the movie started. It is a guarantee crowd pleaser.
Racing with the Moon is quite an enjoyable romance-comedy-drama taking place at a peaceful coastal town during World War II
After over 30 years of only reading about this movie, I finally watched it yesterday on a DVD that I borrowed at the library a few weeks ago. Taking place during World War II, Sean Penn and Nicholas Cage play a couple of late teens who try to live life to the fullest before they join the Marines. Penn develops a relationship with Elizabeth McGovern who he thinks may be a “Gatsby Girl”. Cage’s character is involved with a girl named Sally who ends up in an unfortunate situation. I’ll stop there and just say there’s quite a compelling mix of drama, romance, and comedy that keeps one watching and enjoying nearly every minute that happens during the whole movie. This being only Richard Benjamin’s second film as director-after My Favorite Year-he really handles Steve Kloves’ material sensitively enough that one is touched even during parts that seem to threaten to get a little too much on the sentimental side though still somewhat believable. Really, all I’ll say now is I highly recommend Racing with the Moon.
