Cheri may be too leisurely paced for the Fast & Furious and Terminator Salvation crowd. But if you're in the mood for a warm bath rather than a quick shower, you might find this bittersweet period piece quite moving.
The movie speaks to issues of traditional desirability and dignity, specifically to the point in a woman's life when she either makes decisions about how well those two qualities can exist together or has them made for her.
Chéri is far from dull, thanks in particular to Pfeiffer's languorously nuanced performance as a striking beauty whose dalliance with a boy first flatters her, then makes her feel her age and the emptiness of her fiercely independent life.
