Ignore Jack Sommersby
27 March 2003 | by fred4sureSee all my reviews

This film is a gem. The music and staging are spot on perfect. Milos Foreman clearly loves this material. If you've never seen it before make sure to watch the widescreen version. Treat Williams, who has sunk below the radar these days, takes ownership of the character Berger and pulls us along for the ride.
