This 1992 release is one of those movies your heart wants to love but your head tells you not so fast. Equal parts honest sentiment and strained contrivance, it wins us over with yet another in a growing list of exceptional performances from Michelle Pfeiffer.

"We had a really good script, but I couldn't make any headway with it," said Hill, whose association with the "Alien" and "48 HRS."

Pfeiffer will play a frustrated young woman who heads for the 1963 funeral of assassinated President John F. Kennedy--hoping the historic event will somehow change her mundane life.
