A long languid affair with slow moving characters and plot
An okay movie for a long afternoon. If you can, record it and fast forward through the slower parts. JoBeth Williams puts on a credible performance. The characters themselves are sometimes exasperatingly imprudent and reckless.
This movie has the nutritional value of a big bag of popcorn - it starts out nice and buttery, but it's too filling, not very nutritional, and leaves lots of popcorn hulls in your teeth.
