Critic Reviews for Rambling Rose
It's a beauty.
Willingham, who also scripted Paths of Glory, Little Big Man and The Graduate, wrote Rose in the early 1970s. Thanks to these sterling performances almost two decades later, his screenplay enjoys a fresh and tender blossoming.
The movie is all character and situation, and contains some of the best performances of the year, especially in the ensemble acting of the four main characters.
Seen in a flashback through the eyes of an adolescent, this uncommon coming-of-age tale, which raises poignant questions about the mysteries of sex and love, flaunts a superb performance from Laura Dern as the promiscuous girl
A quirky, funny but moving story with terrific performances all around.
Audience Reviews for Rambling Rose
Rambling Rose is the definitive Laura Dern performance. I particularly like mother-daughter performances as there is often additional sizzle to fictional work and Dern and Diane Ladd don't disappoint.
Laura Dern is exceptional in this film, bringing to life a character who wants to be loved so badly that your heart breaks for her. I found it interesting that Diane Ladd and Dern are mother and daughter and that they were both nominated for Academy Awards that year. I think both awards should have gone to these fine actresses who made me care about characters in a genre of film that I would usually avoid, that of the sentimental drama.
Vivid characterizations from a terrific cast. Laura Dern and Robert Duvall are particularly good. Diane Ladd scores in a supporting role. Fine period flavor, excellent score and it?s very well written. Excellent.
