A Fine Line Feature
Original Theatrical Release Date: June 7th, 2002
Robin Tunney (The Craft, The Mentalist) plays Zoe, a socially awkward young woman (who's harboring some fantasies for wrong guy at work) who one night gets into a car accident after being accosted by a stranger. Because she was driving while intoxicated, she racks up a DUI (her second) and a judge sentences her to house arrest. Zoe also has herself a stalker. One that watches her every move, and obsessively listens to the same kind of music she loves. Zoe now has to adapt to her new environment, and with the help of the guy who checks in on her ankle monitor, she may find a way to get out of her mess.
Cherish is a movie awash with 70's & 80's nostalgia. It's kind of a cross between a romantic comedy and Run Lola Run, and the mix really works. It's pretty entertaining film, with a great cast and especially a winning and spunky performance by it's lead. Robin Tunney here is both very believable as the girl who can't quite get it together socially, but also the girl that seems to attract every one's attention. You fall for her along with them.
And the music... This is one of my very favorite film soundtracks. Lots of incredible tracks put together here and some include: Modern English' I Melt With You, Fascination by The Human League, She's Gone by Hall & Oates, Sister Golden Hair by America and especially I love You by Climax Blues Band. One of the best love songs ever.
Samples of all the good times to be found in Cherish...
Flat-Ironing hair fun!
Singing along with some rad 80's tunes!
Putting the bitch slap to Liz Phair!
And maybe falling in love.
