Movie Info

This compassionate, rather complex romantic drama was a real turn-around for actor-turned- filmmaker Clint Eastwood, who had great success with his two, early, more-action-oriented directorial efforts, the spooky Play Misty for Me and High Plains Drifter. The story centers on the crisis of an embittered, recently divorced middle-aged businessman who decides to retreat from the world and the women that have inspired his cynicism.

A bit of low-key captivation, specifically Californian yet curiously Gallic

Not surprisingly, the joys of Breezy lie in the 'how' rather than the 'what' in this charming May December romance from Clint Eastwood

It plays out as a sappy meeting between representatives of the Counterculture and Establishment.

Audience Reviews for Breezy


Meandering age crisis drama mixed with a May-December romance and some 70's flower child preaching thrown in. In other words a muddled viewing experience.

A sweet breezy romance between a 20 year old hippie and a 55 year old divorcee directed by Clint Eastwood. Kay Lenz plays the cute, easy-going, drifter with a loving sunshiny attitude toward the world. William Holden plays the bitter, cynical, un-trusting, real estate agent who has convinced himself he likes being alone. At times the dialog gets a bit sappy, but overall I liked the issues the movie dealt with, and some of the conversations. It's just a small movie with believable performances and admittedly some uncomfortable moments because of the age difference of the leads.

I love Clint Eastwood but am sorely disappointed in this film. The disparity in the ages between Breezy and Frank made me uncomfortable and the film only lightly touches on this aspect. Additionally, the middle aged businessman and young hippie girl characters seem to be based only on superficial and stereotypical traits; the character development is too simplistic.
