Dreams that become reality: who doesn’t dream about that? For the heroine of Dreamlover that dream has become reality. She only has to dream it to make it happen. But sleeping could be destructive, because the dreams of this lovely young lady are far from innocent. She seeks a window through which she can fly away or she plants a knife inside her obtrusive admirers. In reality Dreamlover is about Kristy McNichol’s therapy to detach herself from her compulsive illusions.
In Dreamlover Alan J. Pakula (All the President’s Men, The Parralax View) has completely devoted himself to the sharp nature of the characters. No intestines splashing around or horrid demons, but an authentic psychological film
