Life for Some....
26 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Cloris Leachman is the matriarch of this family, that travels wherever the work is. When it's spring, it's time to be here to pick that, Or, if it's fall, we go south. Sissy Spacek, Ron Howard, Cindy Williams, Ed Lauter, and David Clennon costar in this TV movie that is painfully real and is based on a Tennessee Williams story. Bad luck seems to find them and they are always behind the eight ball with no sign of change in sight. Cloris Leachman is a standout and is totally in character. It's amazing just how much she is immersed in her role, looks-wise and in terms of desperation of her situation. And, it's interesting to see Ron and Cindy paired together, before being in American Graffiti and Happy Days together. This may be disturbing for some, but it is one TV-movie that should never be forgotten.
