A Glimmer Of Hope?
15 June 2004 | by (Anderson, Indiana) – See all my reviews

I've seen the original zillions of times but have only seen the remake once all the way through, though I seem to remember getting in on the last part a few years later when I happened to notice that it was on again.

Either it was on again or else something similar to it.

I can only remember seeing it once.

One thing that especially impressed me about this one was that it seemed to me that the beach scene offered a glimmer of hope.

Blanche told the cops that her sister was in need of professional help so to please be sure that she got it--and I also had the feeling that help just might have arrived in time that Blanche's life also was spared.

This would mean that the two sisters would have another chance at a good relationship with each other instead of one being dead and the other either being permanently locked away in a mental institution or else a prison--and seen as "hopeless" either way.
