5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful movie March 31 2002
Format:VHS Tape
This movie will appeal to all people who have "a couple" of years of marriage behind them. It is a story of a family falling apart as "love has come to its conclusion". After 27 years of marriage time has changed: All the members of the family still love each other but in different ways. Mother and father live apart but still respect each other. The two daughters slowly find their own way - one through pregnancy, the other through the painful teen years.
Do not expect a stringent story line. This are rather various shots of family life - but well taken. Here, the talks between the father and his younger daughter stick out, especially when the father admits to his daughter that he had never found a way to talk to her as her mother had monopolized her. And he confesses that if she would have been a son it might have been different. But now that the mother was gone he finally came to appreciate having a daughter (in fact he has two).
Younger people might not enjoy the film as they will not (no offence) understand the message of the film.
Also recommendable: the wonderful scenary of the South Carolinian coast area. Wonderful impressions. A film with a lot of emotions.
So, if you are 35 and above, have children and ... buy the film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Meandering Southern tale touches the heart. April 27 2000
Format:VHS Tape
As her family begins to unravel, young Lucille Odom (Kathryn Erbe) enburdens herself with the job of holding the whole deal together, including a casual father (Albert Finney) and a wild older sister (Suzi Amis).
Erbe, a Chicagoan who does far too much work on stage and too little on film (What About Bob?), is wonderful, Finney, brilliant. The story does tend to wander, and each of the new characters that crosses our path (including Piper Laurie and Alfre Woodard) tend to show us as many weaknesses as strengths. Such is the honesty of the tale.
The Southern (Charleston?) setting is wonderfully comfortable-we ride the visual images as much as the heartfelt characters. The whole thing has a Hallmark Hall of Fame feeling---with not the perfunctory payoff in the end
I like this film very much.

5.0 out of 5 stars A movie to be noticed.... Jan. 31 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I loved this movie :-) It came out when I was too young to appreciate it, so I never saw it in the theatres. I was drawn back to it after reading the novel "Rich in Love" by Josephine Humphreys, on which it was based. I think this movie can appeal to anyone who enjoys films like "Fried Green Tomatoes" and "Thelma and Louise". It has a great combination of wit, sadness, humor, irony, and quirky characters.

I rented it several years ago falling in love with it instantly. It was coupled with my love of Charleston and the love of Lucille`s character. The richness of all the characters was comforting. I made sure all my friends viewed it.
