Surreally amazing

This film keeps one feeling slightly off-balance while remaining entirely believable and genuine. This mirrors perfectly the focus on the intense love between Robin Wright Penn's and Sean Penn's characters that struggles to survive the man's severe mental illness. Despite his deep commitment to his wife, he cannot protect her from violence, poverty, and social embarrassment.

I have seldom seen acting as heartbreaking, surprising, and gifted as Robin Wright Penn's here, and her husband's performance is very moving as the childlike adult who is unable to succeed in the modern urban world.

John Travolta plays a wealthy, square suburban dad who falls for and tries to "save" Wright Penn after her husband is compelled to leave her. He manages to break through the stereotype and is sympathetic and real. The audience can't help but be painfully split in its loyalties to the two men in love.

"She's So Lovely" is disturbing and uplifting, gritty and beautiful - a truly unique movie that grabs you on the inside and leaves you feeling changed, though you may not know how. Don't miss it.

It's sad that so many commentators on this just seem to lack human empathy. just too tired of feeling sympathy for anyone but your own, sad and lonely selves ?

Some people have a hard time getting through their lives. For multitudinous reasons.

This film portrays a very touching and passionate marriage between two pretty unhinged people. Played by great actors, Robin Wright and Sean Penn, who also became spouses, in real life. And the chemistry shows, in a way that romance chemistry rarely does in Hollywood films, sad to say.

Then there are the terrific actors James Gandolfini, Harry Dean Stanton, Gena Rowlands, and the charming daughters, etc.

And John Travolta actually upped his game for this. He was terrific in a difficult role.

Screenplay written by the late great John Cassavetes, and directed well by his son, Nick Cassavetes.

I found it to be a bit sentimental, but moving

She's Not Lovely.

She's So Lovely (1997): Dir: Nick Cassavetes / Cast: Sean Penn, Robin Wright, John Travolta, Harry Dean Stanton, Debi Mazar: Repulsive bag of trash starring Robin Wright as a revolting little brat who is anything but lovely. After she is raped Sean Penn goes mad, gets drunk and then shoots somebody. They send him away in a nifty white jacket. Released ten years later with the news that Wright remarried and has a daughter. John Travolta plays her husband who feels that his stepdaughter should meet her father. The plot is contaminated because Nick Cassavetes shoots it like a bad sitcom. Penn is completely unsympathetic with an outrage that somehow never comes off convincingly. We are to believe that he is within the right here but since she is now married, his plea is more nonsense. Wright has this weird habit of tripping. She is even less sympathetic than Penn with a final scene that is more shameful than anything. Travolta delivers one-liners while waiting to get screwed over. His scenes are merely sitcom fashion within stagy sets. Harry Dean Stanton plays a friend of Penn who accompanies him and observes the outbursts. Stanton is often joined by Debi Mazar, who sits out the useless climax. It is a pathetic film that should be puked upon by every intoxicated person who resorted to alcohol upon seeing it. Message about alcohol is thwarted by its revolting ending. Score: 0 / 10
