Summary: Best movie of the year! (1997)
One of the best films I've ever seen. John Cusack plays a professional killer who happens to get hired to do a job in his old hometown, at the same time his high school's ten-year reunion is about to happen. This leads to him visiting a world he left behind ten years ago, including a girlfriend he left standing at the prom. The pacing and storyline of this movie are unbelievable, and the acting is top notch. There simply hasn't been anything this well-done since The Hudsucker Proxy. The soundtrack is filled with songs from the mid-eighties, and it is fascinating to see how the various characters dealt with their teen angst and grew up, and how, in many ways, they are still the same. Go see this film.
