one of the most moving films I've ever seen
31 July 2004 | by (Edmonton, Ab) – See all my reviews

I can't remember how I was fortunate enough to even see this movie. It might have been on Bravo. It is based on the Pulitzer prize winning novel "A Death In the Family" by James Agee. He also wrote the screenplay for this excellent movie. It is a small story about a southern family who love one another and what happens when there is a death in that family. Robert Preston is wonderful. His character has such depth and sincerity and the relationship between he and his small son is very moving. Jean Simmons is also very good as the pregnant wife in this small family. I hope this movie is available on DVD or VHS soon. I can't wait to purchase it. Highly recommended.
