The Whole Wide World
Dan Ireland (Mrs. Palfry at the Claremont) directs our next Rialto Recommends 1996's THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD. A touching and unusual love story, THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD was based on a memoir by Novalyne Price Ellis, in which she recalled her brief romance with Robert E. Howard, creator of Conan the Barbarian and one of the finest and most prolific pulp writers of his day. Roger Ebert wrote "Novalyne is Renee Zellweger, who was magical as Tom Cruise's romantic partner in Jerry Maguire and is charming here, too, as a small-town school teacher who dreams of being a writer." USA Today said "Invest some patience and you'll be richly rewarded with rolling frontier vistas, butterscotch sunsets and a sweet, melancholy romance that will sneak up on you and grab your heart." THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD is available for a modest rental fee from Amazon, YouTube, GooglePlay and Vudu HERE.
