Second of three collaborations of actress Tess Harper and director Bruce Beresford. The films include Her Alibi (1989), Tender Mercies (1983), and Crimes of the Heart (1986), the latter of which Harper got Oscar nominated for Best Supporting Actress. Many film industry personnel had previously predicted Harper to be a big possibility to be nominated in either the Best Actress or Best Supporting Actress categories for the Academy Award for Beresford's earlier film Tender Mercies (1983) but in the end Harper was not nominated in either category for Tender Mercies (1983).

Oh, well, that's good news.
None of this is good news Lennie Magrath! It's all a grueling nightmare and you mark my word those resposible will pay dearly!

I've seen this film a few times. The first time I thought I'd have a hard time believing the 3 actresses as sisters because they didn't look alike. But as the film got rolling I didn't even think about it...it seemed natural that they were sisters. All 3 leads are great but Tess Harper is hilarious!
