The Fantasticks

After half a decade sitting on the shelf of a musty studio vault, some kindly executive finally rescued this old-fashioned charmer from obscurity. Based on the long-running off-Broadway hit, this simple musical tells the tale of two rural lovers who are thrown together by their conspiring parents and a carnival Lotharia. While the original is noted for its fairy tale minimalism (there are something like four props in the entire play), the film version strives to create a full, rich universe (sort of a romanticized version of the rural 1920s). For the most part, it works. The actors are game, the music fun and the cinematography lush. Still, it's hard to sell a musical (particularly one this self-consciously "stagey") in this cynical day and age. For fans of the genre only.
