Downer of a ending mars otherwise good movie
27 December 1999 | by (Alabama) – See all my reviews

Jason Robards and Julie Harris are wonderful in this leisurely film that is reminiscent of the great classic movies. However, the revelation of Julie Harris's "secret" in the last 15 minutes totally ruins the story and it leaves you feeling cheated, or at least it did for me. Recommended, but be prepared for a big let down at the end.
