There's a slight dissonance between Lawrence Kasdan's classicist language and Anne Taylor's quirky literary world, and it took me some time to realize that William Hurt's deadpan radiance was deliberate. THE ACCIDENTAL TOURIST is still highly recommendable - a little gem which has stood the test of time very well through solid storytelling, genuine heart and a script which ranks amongst the finest of its era.
Its been five years since I saw this film for the first time. It has grown on me seeing it for the second time today. Its a simple film set during autumn where loss and emptiness is something that the main characters have in common and naturally attracts them towards each other. These relationships fades and blooms during the whole film where they fortunately see the light of spring in the end.
