Holds Its Own
10 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As I recall (I've only seen this once), this made-for-TV adaptation was somewhat more faithful to Betty Smith's novel than Elia Kazan's film. Comparing the two is somewhat unfair (different times, dissimilar budgets, etc.), and both fall somewhat short when compared to the novel, which is excruciatingly detailed (and therein lies its great narrative strength). I'd like to see this again to determine if it's as good as I remember (I found all of the performances very moving), but I haven't seen it in 20-odd years. Don't hesitate to give it a shot if the chance presents itself, especially if you've read the novel. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
