Moving

It's really cool when you find a hidden jem, and Miss Rose White is definitely one of them. There are too few good character dramas released, but with this film we have an intelligent, moving, and very well acted addition to the genre.

Set in the 1940's it's the tale of the relationship between two Polish Jewish sisters. Kyra Sedgwick is a career woman was taken to America by her father as a girl and has done her best to hide her roots (going so far as to change her jewish name). The other sister played by Amanda Plummer stayed in Poland with her mother awaiting their father to send the money so they to could come to America. Before he can however she and her mother were interned by the Nazi's in a concentration camp during WW2. The mother dies there. After Plummer is released she comes to America and reminds Sedgwick of the past she tried to forget. Both sisters have serious issues with their father to sort out too.

All the characters in this film are very well rounded and imperfect. It is really a story about a disfunctional family. The acting is very impressive. Sedgwick shines and gives a perfectly natural performance, she is totally believable. Throughout the film I kept asking myself why she isn't a bigger star? Plummer is excellent, especially when dealing with the relationship with her father. Maximilian Schell too is superb as the father.

I congratulate the writer, director, cast and everyone else involved with making this picture. Whatever recognition you got, wasn't enough.

9/10
