Julian Berniers and Lily Prine have just gotten married. They have been in Chicago on business before returning to their home town of New Orleans, where they will meet with Julian's older spinster sisters, Anna and Carrie, who still live in the long time unpaid for family home. Anna and Carrie, as the elder siblings, have long kept Julian afloat during his wheeling and dealings. Julian has largely kept Lily in the dark about his activities, including the mysterious meetings he has had in New Orleans in the week prior to meeting up with Anna and Carrie. Despite losing the factory in Chicago, Julian comes bearing expensive gifts for his sisters, including paying off the house and a trip for both of them to Europe, something that they have long talked about wanting to do.

Things change for the women in Julian's life when they learn that he has been meeting ... Written by Huggo

GREAT PICTURE!
1 April 2002 | by See all my reviews

Great Picture! Dean gives a great performance, along with the other actors. Also I think that the story was told very well and that the way the movie was put together was superb. This is definitely a favorite of mine. This movie gets a 10 from me!
