Tommy Lee Jones,
First lead starring role in a major motion picture for Martha Plimpton. Plimpton received an 'introducing' credit, even though the movie was her second feature film, after she had appeared in Rollover (1981). See more »

It's a shame that this movie has not made it to DVD. The 3 main characters are well cast and developed. I like the sensitive handling of the father's attempts to build a relationship with a daughter he has never known. Dennehy, whom I have seldom seen playing a villain, seems almost an incarnation of pure evil (shades of Cape Fear).
I hope that,over time,it will get the recognition it deserves. It is an interesting example of a well-made film that isn't trying to be a blockbuster and shows the interesting alternative side to American film making.
Great settings and a good soundtrack which I would like to have been able to purchase. It looks like a portrait of a way of life, with its close association with living on and beside the river, that has probably disappeared now. A simple tale,well told.
