Her expected return starts to impact a number of lives, including that of her former partner Denton Webb. But it is Dinky, the adopted daughter of the Bossettis and ignored by most of her classmates as a strange loner, who may be most changed. She is convinced she is Roxie’s secret child.
Plot: Movie star Roxy Carmichael is abandoning the bright lights of Hollywood, Calif. and returning to her small Ohio hometown — at least long enough to dedicate a city building. And now the whole town of Clyde is bracing for Carmichael’s return, most of all her now-married old flame Denton Webb and troubled teen Dinky Bossetti. An orphan with few friends, Dinky is convinced that Carmichael is her birth mother, and that the actress will reclaim her when she returns.

Winona Ryder great but the movie is lacking
15 years ago, Roxy Carmichael left town leaving behind her boyfriend and new baby. Now, she’s coming home as a success story. Her former boyfriend Denton Webb (Jeff Daniels) is still not over her despite being married with kids. Dinky Bossetti (Winona Ryder) is adopted, bullied at school and a loner who keeps lots of animals at an abandoned boat. Dinky is convinced that she’s the love child of Roxy and Denton. She’s interested in class hunk Gerald Howells but he’s reluctant to show affection for the class freak. Her only friend is the school counselor Elizabeth Zaks.
Winona Ryder is perfectly cast as this sensitive outsider teen. She is great at playing this type of character. The rest of the movie lacks humor. It tries to be a sharp black comedy but the writing isn’t good enough. Director Jim Abrahams is more known for his spoof movies. He doesn’t seem to have a solid hold on a sensitive serious coming-of-age movie. The tone is awkward. The attempted comedy slams into Denton’s anger and his side of the story. The movie works with Ryder but struggles without her.
6 out of 10.
Wow, I saw this such a long time ago but did really enjoy it as I enjoy most of Rider’s work. This is another “movie with a message”. It was extremely well done, well acted and interesting movie. There was just one problem.
SPOILER ALERT: The ending WAS pretty much a tease. I don’t like when a movie teases you with something and then it never happens. Another IMDb reviewer wrote how bad this ending was and I agree-completely-it’s to much a tease-you’ll turn the movie off feeling cheated and since that’s never a good way to be at the end of a flick I wouldn’t rate this movie past a 6. I understand endings are not always as we, the audience would like them to be but there is a difference between endings that are necessary to the plot of the movie and endings that just seem contrived to cheat the viewer out of something they’ve waited for the whole film. Watch it if you haven’t and you’ll see what I mean.
