Hi all. My name is Angie and I'm from the UK. I first fell in love with River in 1998 when My Own Private Idaho was on TV. I was completely blown away by his performance and I thought he looked so beautiful.

Lately I've been thinking alot about River again, which has lead me to Across The Way. I would love to make friends with other River fans and I'm looking forward to chatting to all of you.

My first question is; what are your fave River films?

Mine are; MOPI, Dogfight and Stand By Me

Hi Angie! Welcome to ATW! Always makes me happy to see new faces here!

My favorite River film, although there are still one or two I haven't seen, is Running on Empty and second is The Thing Called Love. He sings in that film and I love his voice! Although, I really liked Dogfight too!

Look forward to getting to know you. And check out the chat room sometime too! Several of us are in there quite a bit and the more the merrier!

Peace

Hello, Angie! It's so nice to meet you...and welcome to ATW! I'm glad you found us...and glad you started thinking about River again! Even tho it is hard for me to watch sometimes, Angie, I agree with you about MOPI...River was wonderful and beautiful in it...and his performance in the movie stays with you long after the movie is over. My fave River movie is "Running on Empty"...and then "Thing called Love"...but ALL his movies put a smile on my face! River is still very dear to my heart...to all of us here...and words can't describe how happy it makes me to meet a new River fan! Hope to get to know more about you, Angie..and look forward to chatting and sharing with you sometime! As Kathy said - we are in the chatroom alot ..so pop in sometime and we'll share River stories! Much love, Kim

Welcome, Angie! I discovered ATW earlier this year and I find it to be the best place online to share your love for Riv.

My favorite movies of Riv's are the same as Kim & Kathy. The storyline in ROE is beautifully heartbreaking and I love the message behind TTCL.

hey angie!!
welcome to atw and happy to meet some fellow river-friends!
its really hard to tell which are my favourites... depending on my mood and my own live-situations it always changes and it can happen when i see this film one day i say "oh absolutely my favourite"..and then when i watch another one the next day i say "ah, no, this one is my favourite!"
but dogfight is indeed a very unique and heartmelting film!
i am always amazed to realize, especially when i think about dogfight and mopi, how you can especially in those two movies see how extremely different and outstanding his acting abilities were.
there are actors who usually sadly either never manage to get out of playing more than one usual type of role or actually are never able to play something else but this one particular role.
and rivers work is just beyong words.. cant find words for it.. absolutely outstanding!

hope you have fun here and get to meet some lovely friends.
