Here on Earth

Neither the love nor the loss in this tear-jerking romance contains much drama, as Leelee Sobieski forsakes her poor local boyfriend for a rich prep-school student who's forced—by a series of barely dramatic ironies—to spend time in their little town. The crudely telegraphed and thematically superfluous illness of one character takes over at a point so far along in the narrative it's insulting, and not even Sobieski's glowing screen presence can turn the dubiously earnest schmaltz into functional melodrama. Mark Piznarski directed a screenplay by Michael Seitzman; with Chris Klein. 96 min.
