Critic Reviews for Breezy
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
Audience Reviews for Breezy
Both actors do their part well enough to keep this thing afloat. 'Breezy' is obnoxious, but never crosses the line into annoyance, and Holden manages to add in just enough humor to go along with his dull demeanor. It's certainly not a classic, and it does go on about 15 minutes too long - but Eastwood manages to pull it off.
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.
I'm surprised by this early directorial effort of Clint Eastwood. I watched the film simply for William Holden, not expecting much in terms of quality, and walked away quite satisfied. In a nutshell, the story is a May-December romance that reminded me of a more recent film, Venus. Kay Lenz plays a bubbly and talkative twenty-year old hippie, who at first really grated my nerves, but as the film progressed she grew on me. Holden was as awesome as ever, playing the the wise-cracking embittered cynic, a type of character he became famous for after Sunset Blvd. The film had its endearing moments as well as its painfully sappy and awkward ones, but overall it definitely went above my expectations. Highly recommended for fans of Bill Holden.
