Reprising his role as Oliver Barrett, Ryan O' Neal returns in the sequel to box-office smash-hit 'Love Story', the tale of Oliver trying to re-build his life after the death of his young wife.
Co-starring Ray Milland (as Oliver Barrett III), and Candice Bergen as the beautiful and captivating Marcie, the film follows Oliver as he meets and falls in love with Marcie. However, no matter how hard Oliver tries to accommodate the absence of his dead wife, he is unable to develop any sort of serious bond with anyone else. His love-affair with Marcie merely serves as a reminder to what he no longer has, and the constant sense of pain and emptiness Oliver experiences sees him imprisoned behind an invisible wall of uncertainty and loneliness...
The excellent screenplay and familiarity of the characters of Oliver and his father make the sequel a worthy follow-up to the brilliant and moving 'Love Story'. Accessible both to fans of the original and new audiences, this is a touching development in the story of the young, head-strong Oliver Barrett.
