Looking for an Echo

Looking for an Echo ★★½ 1999 (R)

Vince (Assante) is a widower pushing 50 who had some teen success in a dowop group and then put his singing aside to marry and raise his kids. His middle son, Anthony (Balerini), is now bringing up dad's old dreams (and some regrets) by being in his own rock band. But Vince's main concerns are for youngest child, Tina (Romano), who's in the hospital battling leukemia. This puts Vince in the flirty orbit of brassy nurse Joanne (Venora), who would like to offer the guy some personal care. Assante supplies lots of charm in a glossy, sentimental tearjerker. 97m/C VHS, DVD . Armand Assante, Diane Venora, Joe Grifasi, Tom Mason, Anthony John (Tony) Denison, Edoardo Ballerini, David Margulies, Christy Carlson Romano; D: Martin Davidson; W: Martin Davidson, Jeffrey Goldenberg, Robert Held; C: Charles Minsky.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
