A Little Romance ★★★★½

What a wonderful and nostalgic film this is for me. It completely reconnects me with my youth in a way few films do. George Roy Hill was such an amazing director. Between this film, The Great Waldo Pepper, Slaughterhouse-Five, The Sting, and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid he’s made some of my favorite movies. While watching this again I had wonder, would Hollywood today make a film like this today? A film where two 14 year old kids go to a porn film? A film that explores first love with such deep truth? A film so touching; so sad and sweet? It has perhaps one of my favorite freeze frame endings. Also, it's so fantastic and wonderful to see Paris as it was in 1979. That Paris is sadly gone, and with it this kind of movie experience.
