4 • The Rambler September 16, 1998 Simon Birch: only a small miracle Rg| Julie King Opinions editor Aside from stellar perfor- mances from lead actors Ian Michael Smith and Joseph Mazzello, Simon Birch is a weak adaptation of John Irving's 1989 novel, A Prayer for Owen Meany. Smith and Mazzello are the only actors in the film who suc- cessfully inject Irving's intensity into screenwriter/director Mark Steven Johnson's oversimplified script, which con- . densesa novel spanning the char- acters' lifetimes into a few brief episodes from their childhoods. For tliis reason, the film is merely "suggested by" A I'layer for Owen Meany. And that's ex.ac.tly what the lilm feels like a suggestion of greater possi- bilities. Smith plays Simon Birch, a liny child who believes he has a destiny to fulfill. Ignored by his parents, Simon is taken in by the family of his best friend, Joe Wenteworth (Mazzello). Because they are the town's outcasts (Simon because of his size and Joe because lie was bor...
