Movie Info

In this offbeat, romantic comedy, a young woman tries to conceal her paralyzed leg in order to get her man. Sophie is a young and creative writer. Her stories are quite sexual. One night, as she reads one of her erotic tales aloud she is overheard by Eddie, a jeweler known for his womanizing. Eddie is engaged to a forthright, demanding woman. Sophie falls in love with Eddie. He too, seems similarly attracted to her. But Sophie has a secret that may present an obstacle; she has a paralyzed leg

Despite its wildly improbable plot, its general tone is one of a becalmed hush, full of wondering discovery, highly suitable for romance.
