6 Questions With the Original Goth Girl, Ally Sheedy

Review 'Like Sunday, Like Rain' is tender, hitting the right notes - LA TIMES

on March 19, 2015

Writer-director Frank Whaley, primarily a busy film and TV actor ("Field of Dreams," "Ray Donovan"), has crafted a tender, evocative tale of an unlikely friendship in his fourth outing behind the camera, "Like Sunday, Like Rain."

The title, which evokes some lost Neil Diamond song, refers to a music composition written by 12-year-old Reggie (Julian Shatkin), a cello prodigy and all-around brainiac who lives in hollow luxury on Manhattan's Upper West Side with his tense, dismissive mother, Barbara (Debra Messing).
