A LITTLE ROMANCE
June 30, 2017  | By David Bianculli

TCM, 10:00 p.m. ET

 

Diane Lane, as an actress, has enchanted me for decades – and that enchantment begin with this 1979 movie, which was her cinematic debut. It was a starring role, too, in which she, as a young teenager, played a young teenager – an American girl who attends school in Paris, meets a young French boy (Thelonious Bernard, in what was his screen debut as well), and falls in love, with encouragement from an elderly French grifter, played by Laurence Olivier. A Little Romance is directed, with beautiful attention to the scenery and romance of Paris, by George Roy Hill, who fit this charming little movie into his resume after Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and Slap Shot and just before The World According to Garp.
