The Sandpiper

SD

Twenty-something Laura Reynolds is a free spirit who questions social conventions, laws and regulations. A struggling artist, she lives in a secluded beach-side cabin in Big Sur with her nine year old illegitimate son, Danny, on who she has instilled her values. Because of this questioning of convention, Laura has decided to home school Danny. Also because of this questioning of the law, Danny runs into some legal problems, and as such is court ordered to be sent to San Simeon, a Christian school in Monterey. This order is against Laura's wishes. The school's headmaster is Dr. Rev. Edward Hewitt, who tries to convince Laura that San Simeon is not the prison she probably believes it to be. Married for twenty-one years to his faithful wife Claire, Edward has become more a fund-raiser at all cost (for a new chapel) rather than an educator or priest. Despite their differences, Laura and Edward begin to fall for each other. Both but especially Edward have to reconcile their feelings for each other to their beliefs, which they learn are closer to each other than what may appear on the surface. Their feelings also bring to the forefront what each really wants in life beyond their current lot.... Show more

Review

The Sandpiper is one of these movies you want to watch over and over again. However, those who hate such films will not be disappointed, because the dialogues led by the main characters are brilliant. I sat for a long time after I ended watching The Sandpiper, reflecting on my life. There are some stages in this movie that I will remember until death. But this diversity of dialogues is the essence of this film, they arouse the audience's respect, especially against the backdrop of today's cinema. The few "perfect" movies that have ever been released are so perfect in every respect that every scene seems to be a masterpiece in itself. There is no better place in web for movies than Stream-Planet.com so I added full movie here :).... Show more
