He teaches with as much enthusiasm as he can muster, lives in the farmhouse where he grew up, and has been engaged for the last six years to Rosealee Henson (Amy Irving). Rosealee is the widow of his best friend, and, for a variety of

Tries to incorporate almost film-noir elements into a heartland love story. The blending feels inorganic; and composer Bruce Broughton doesn't help matters by coating every moment with a repetitive, syrupy theme.

An earnestly well-meaning film whose adult characters have a refreshingly grown-up perspective on their choices in life.

Everyone in the film -- even the teenager -- is more intelligent and articulate than is usually permitted in American movies, and having gotten themselves into an emotional tangle, they go to work getting themselves out again.

Think Dennis Hopper has played too many crazies? Well, you'll wish he'd stuck to blowing up buses after you see him in Carried Away.

Carried Away is erotic, but it's also thoughtful and intelligent, and, coupled with Hopper's extraordinary performance, that's reason enough to be carried away by this motion picture.

I wasn't carried away with this Lolita like cautionary tale, but I was impressed enough by its intelligent presentation.

A very dry and formulaic re-telling of a cautionary tale we know all too well by now.

Carried Away is a brilliant evocation of rural life and repressed lust. One of the ten-best films of 1996.

A chilling, Lolita-like drama that's elevated by a terrific performance by Hopper.

Director Barreto has a fine eye for composition and a knowing heart for human emotion, keeping things simple and sparse.

The performances are captivating, so much so that the film's sometimes slow pace is never a real problem.

Ususual drama about personal transformation starring Dennis Hopper.

This is an unusually sensual and nonpuritanical American movie perhaps because it was made by a Brazilian director.
