Movie Info

Sarah Deever (Sandy Dennis) is an idealistic young woman living in Brooklyn. Her altruistic nature finds her taking in visitors for a month at a time to help them in their time of need. Charlie Blake (Anthony Newley) is her latest reclamation project, a cardboard-box factory worker and owner of an annoyingly loud alarm on his wristwatch. Charlie gains entrance to her apartment and eventually her heart when he reveals he always wanted to be a poet. Sarah seeks to overcome her own problems by helping those in need, but her need for Charlie's love soon supersedes her initial intentions. He is allowed to stay for the month of November as she adheres to her traditional deadline on guests.

Audience Reviews for Sweet November

A very Quirky Woman (Sandy Dennis) thinks it's her lot in life to every month take on a new man, & mold hm into the man he is suppose to be but didn't know he is capable of.She has a contract with them that they move in with her at Midnight on the 1st of each month, & leave at midnight on the last day of the month an enhanced, enlightened person.November is Charlie(Anthony Newley), a Stuffy Box Manufacturer who falls in love with her, & his Inner Poet emerges.He doesn't want to leave, & soon discovers she is Terminally. Ill.A lovely Story, much better than the more current version.

Offbeat comedy with one of the kookiest main characters you will ever see. There's an underlying sadness though as we come to realize why Sara ends her affairs after a month. I'd love to see the remake to compare the two movies.
