Nobody's Fool (1994)

He could be Cool Hand Luke thirty years later.  Paul Newman stars as
Sully, a 60-year-old construction worker trying to get through another
North Bath, NY winter.  He's still the rebel and still well-liked,
though work isn't very good.  His relationship with his son needs help,
also.  They have a failure to communicate.  (Sorry)

Director Robert Benton (KRAMER VS. KRAMER) favors the players over the
plot and wisely lets his cast run ahead of the story.  They include
Jessica Tandy, Dylan Walsh, Bruce Willis, and Melanie Griffith.  Why the
smaller parts are filled by so many familiar faces is a mystery, though.
Such as sweet story doesn't need them.

Grade: B+
