Quote:
The Hotel New Hampshire is a 1984 film based on a 1981 novel of the same name by John Irving. The film was directed by Tony Richardson (who also wrote the screenplay) and stars Jodie Foster, Rob Lowe, Nastassja Kinski and Beau Bridges. The film also features Wilford Brimley, Amanda Plummer, Matthew Modine, and a young Seth Green in a supporting role.

In an introductory foreword that he wrote for a later edition of the novel, author Irving stated that he was thrilled when Richardson informed him that he wanted to adapt the book to the screen. Irving wrote that he was very happy with the adaptation, complaining only that he felt Richardson tried to make the film too faithful to the book, noting the manner in which Richardson would often speed up the action in an attempt to include more material onscreen.

A weird little movie. It has some nice performances lead by Jodie Foster. The movie was a mixed bag for me, some things worked, some things didn't. B-
