Valentine's Day Movie Recommendation

If you're looking for an interesting movie to watch on the evening of St. Valentine's Day, one that examines the themes of love, relationships, the battle of the sexes, and in some cases the purposes of life, I recommend a little motion picture from 1996 directed by Ted Demme called Beautiful Girls.

It's funny and heartwarming, with a terrific cast that includes Timothy Hutton, Matt Dillon, Martha Plimpton, Michael Rapaport, Lauren Holly, Rosie O'Donnell, Noah Emmerich, Annabeth Gish, Mira Sorvino, Uma Thurman, David Arquette, and a marvelous performance by the young Natalie Portman.

It's one of those films that pleasantly surprised me when I first saw it, exceeding any expectations I may have had.  Full of laughs as well as tender moments, Beautiful Girls is a movie that sticks with you over the years.
