a must-see for any Richard Thomas fan!
31 October 1998 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

What a great movie! I applaud the role of the eldest daughter as she overcomes her father's domination & then goes on to aid her sisters in the same. Her character & determination reminded me of a 90s woman & was certainly not typical of her time frame.
