Viggo is an extreme sports dude named Roy Nord (yes, really!) who tries to out-macho Stallone. Amy Brenneman is an aspiring playwright who rescues a busload full of juvenile delinquents. Plus, what's a '90s flick w/out Dan Hedaya? I found DAYLIGHT on Starz. It's a lot, lol.
I'll never forget reading Laura Esquivel's LIKE WATER FOR CHOCOLATE @ 10 & realizing my aunt (who'd recommended it) had an um, side I didn't know about, lol. It was my first exposure to magical realism too & I wrote a major film school paper on Alfonso Arau's stunning '92 movie.
