MOVIE REVIEW: AWAKENINGS (Penny Marshall, 1990)


“What we do know is that, as the chemical window closed, another awakening took place; that the human spirit is more powerful than any drug – and that is what needs to be nourished: with work, play, friendship, family. These are the things that matter. This is what we’d forgotten – the simplest things.”

Rating: ★★★★☆
