Movie Preview: Lost gem from the ’90s gets a restoration, re-edit and re-release — Affleck, Weisz, Clayburgh and McGowan — “Going All the Way”

Quite a cast assembled for this Mark Pellington film based on a Dan Wakefield novel.

Future Oscar winners Ben Affleck and Rachel Weisz, and Jill Clayburgh, Lesley Anne Warren, Amy Locane, Rose McGowan and Jeremy Davies assembled for a a Beat era tale of two Korean War vets who come home to lives of existential angst and disconnection.

This is being labeled a “director’s re edit,” and a “Sundance hit,” which is kind of contradictory. Can’t recall the story on why this never got much of a release. Author or studio imposed limitations on how it was cut? Director acknowledging now that it just didn’t “play?”

Nov. 7, we find out what the fuss should have been about.
