Are friends the best therapy? ┬áRichard Donner’s first feature post- Superman is a complete switcheroo — a small-scale character piece that delivers an impressive lineup of engaging actors. John Savage leads a ‘different’ ensemble of the walking wounded, that congregates at a neighborhood bar. The movie has a positive sports theme, and the way its characters overcome physical limits and psychological damage feels uplifting, never phony. Diana Scarwid earned an Oscar nomination, and the unappreciated Amy Wright is a heartbreaker in a strong, uncompromised role. Also co-starring David Morse, Harold Sylvester, Bill Henderson, Bert Remsen, Harold Russell, and Tony Burton. On Blu-ray from Scorpion Releasing.
