Set in the year 1912 on Cape Cod, a lighthouse keeper who has disavowed any association with females, must deal with the appearance of two attractive women who move into a nearby cottage for the summer.
Boy. I never thought that Richard Dreyfuss could ruin a movie, but this one he did. He was absolutely the wrong person for this part. His acting abilitles were terrible, over-the-top, and laughable. The surrounding cast was pretty good, however, and the story was nice. Too bad....
a finely constructed & acted period piece set in 1912 about a crusty old lighthouse keeper who is forced to deal with issues when a stranger washes up on shore and becomes his assisstant and his wife also shows up after a number of years.
