HANDSOME HARRY, A film by Bette Gordon, NR, 94min.
They call him âHandsomeâ Harry Sweeney (Jamey Sheridan). At 52, the Vietnam veteran has kept his rugged good looks. Everyone likes Harry, an electrician by trade who loves to singâ"but for some reason he never lets anyone get too close. One day, Harry gets a call from a former Navy buddy, Tom Kelly (Steve Buscemi), whom he hasnât seen in some thirty years. On his death bed and terrified of going to Hell, Kelly convinces Harry to seek forgiveness on his behalf from a comrade they betrayed long ago, David Kagan (Campbell Scott). At first, Harry wants nothing to do with Kelly, Kagan or the remnants of his murky past. But guilt and memories have a mysterious grasp on Harry, and he finally relents, driving down the East Coast to call on his old comrades. One by one he confronts the rugged Rheems, (John Savage) the intellectual Porter, (Aidan Quinn) and the soft-spoken Gephardt, (Titus Welliver) about the
long ago crime. Handsome Harry is a psychological mystery about lost love, forgiveness, and the stifling effect the âcode of silenceâ has over men and their relationships.
