Real family values.
11 November 2001 | by (Tampa, Florida) – See all my reviews

Amy Madigan plays an artist who takes care of her retarded younger sister Allison (Chloe Webb), a job their snooty mother (Olympia Dukakis) gave up long before. Then Allison wins the state lottery and here comes mama, determined to "take over" care of her daughter, much to Madigan's dismay. Fortunately she has Terence Knox as her stalwart boyfriend to keep her on an even keel. Movie plays somewhat like a Martin Ritt film in its realism and location filming versus Hollywood soundstages. All three actresses give tip-top performances. The kind of women's movie Lifetime >should< be making.
