Fantasticks, The (Blu-ray)

We no longer offer this title for sale, this listing is here for reference. Screen Archives still carries a wide selection of Twilight Time titles.
Director Michael Ritchie’s movie version of the perennial off-Broadway smash, The Fantasticks (2000), was made five years before it was actually released, with an assist from Francis Ford Coppola. A charm-drenched period-piece musical, it tells the story of a pair of potential young lovers (Jean Louisa Kelly, Joey McIntyre) whose romance is assisted/derailed by the machinations of their fathers, played to a fare-thee-well by Joel Grey and Brad Sullivan.  Featuring a memorable, award-winning score by Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt, highlighted by the deathless “Try to Remember.”
