Roz does it again...
on January 17, 2002
I'm also a fan of the original "Trouble with Angels," but it's the sequel that has always held a very special place in my heart. Capturing all of the spirit of its predecessor, "Where Angels Go, Trouble Follows" uses words and honest, intelligent dialogue to convey its ideas whereas "The Trouble with Angels" used simpler, albeit charming, images.
The conflict of of this sequel is between far more than the simple students vs. teachers dynamic of the original. In "Where Angels Go, Trouble Follows," the entire institution of the convent, its inhabitants, and its ideals are explored. Rosalind Russel snaps perfectly in this role and the surface challenges of a mere cross country bus ride mirror her own challenges with new ideas, opposing philosophies, and, yes, plenty of antics.
A retinue of supporting cameos only enhance what is, for me, a truly special and touching movie experience.
