Audience Reviews for Coming Up Roses

  • Nov 09, 2006
    Remarkable. In this drama from Blake Edwards, Jack Lemmon and Lee Remick present a love story fractured and distorted by alcholism. Lemmon is particularly deceptive, his normally affable nice guy persona proves shockingly different when his addiction takes him over and overrides his consideration for everyone else, illustrated best when he goes out to the greenhouse at night to find a bottle he stashed in one of the pots, but when he can't find it, panics and screams, becoming frantically desperate. They principle players are aided brilliantly by Edwards' direction, delivering several protracted takes (including the afore-mentioned scene), which offers the audience little shelter from the romantic carnage on screen. It is also notable for depicting the difficulty of kicking the stuff, as we follow Joe battling his problem, but at the height of our trust falls into binging once again at the eleventh hour. Watch out as well for Charles Bickford's startling support in the thankless role as Kirsten's protective father, a man who has tragically been there before. The picture has barely dated a day and remains a melancholic classic.
