It's the 4th Of July, 1948, and the Wisdom clan gathers beneath the shadow of an unpleasant revelation.
4 October 1999 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

A beautiful, quiet little film that painstakingly chronicles the disintegration of a family and their secrets over the course of a 4th of July weekend, 1948. Director Shanklin treads Faulkner/Williams territory with a deft hand, in this ulcerating American Gothic. Watch for a veeeery young Sean Penn as one of the cousins.
