A Little Romance
Posted by Rachel Greene on Feb 1, 2003 - 12:13:00 AM

HOLLYWOOD—Diane Lane has become more noticeable as an actress since doing "Unfaithful," for which she received a Golden Globe nomination.  However, I knew she was a great actress when I first saw her in one of my all-time favorite films "A Little Romance" (1979).

I was probably 9 or 10 years old when I first caught this movie on TV and have seen it probably a half a dozen times since then, and I'm enchanted every time.  Diane Lane plays Lauren, a precocious teenager living in Paris with her loopy mother (Sally Kellerman) and her sweet stepfather (Arthur Hill).  She meets an equally intelligent French boy.  She and Daniel (Thelonius Bernard) start an innocent romance soon to be made forbidden by Lauren's mother.  Along the way, they meet Julius (played brilliantly by Laurence Olivier).  After hearing his tale of kissing under the "Bridge of Sighs" in Venice, the threesome take off on an adventure of a lifetime to Italy.

This movie has it all.  Great acting, beautiful scenery, comedy, romance, you name it.  The music in it is so fitting and beautiful that I searched it out and had it as my wedding music (by the way, it's Vivaldi's "Concerto in D").  The film became available on DVD in January.  Everyone needs a little romance in their life...here's the perfect chance to capture it!
