Film Review

By Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat

 

Speechless
Directed by Ron Underwood
MGM/UA 12/94 DVD/VHS Feature Film
PG-13

Here is a delightful romantic comedy starring Michael Keaton and Geena Davis. Julia is an idealistic speechwriter for a liberal Democrat running for the Senate in New Mexico. One evening, while looking for some sleeping pills in an all-night convenience store, she meets Kevin. They immediately hit it off. Then, Julia finds out that he is a one-time comedy writer who has been hired by the Republican candidate to juice up his senatorial race.

How do you keep a love affair alive in the midst of a down-and-dirty political campaign when you are working for opposing camps? With great difficulty and creative subterfuge. Robert King's snappy screenplay gives Julia and Kevin plenty to work with as they trade barbs and frantically try to deal with the many obstacles facing their relationship. Director Ron Underwood (City Slickers) keeps the film humming along with one surprise after another.
