I felt very sad and depressed and it would have been the last thing to occur to me that it was uninteresting; I was just taken by her wish to see the outside world again, feel the fresh wind and to go to school, but Her romance with the more introverted Peter Van Daan sensitively portrayed Jonathan Kaplan nicely adds a romantic touch with which a young '90s audience can identify.
