Niagara Niagara

Marcy (Robin Tunney) goes on the road with her new boyfriend, Seth (Henry Thomas), but without her medication in a 1997 riff on Harold and Maude that almost succeeds in hiding its slightness. Marcy can't help but be an intriguing character with her compulsive—and willfully uncontrolled—behavior, and Seth, who's ill at ease in his own skin, is the perfect complement. Their inspirational courtship continues even as the story is dragged down by a crime spree and the inevitable sense of doom. Many of the technical maneuvers—an image from a TV screen reflected in a pair of glasses, the opening waterfall shots—are impressive. But the production lacks passion, and the affectedly quirky material undercuts the strong performances. Bob Gosse directed a screenplay by Matthew Weiss.
