Well done
30 September 2003 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

After reading a rather rabid comment on this movie I feel compelled to write my recommendation. This movie is well written and performed. Unfortunately these things do happen as described in the film and I could not think of a better way to portray them than was done here by the sensitive performances of all involved. Especially Dina Merrills' role as a wife and mother so steeped in denial that you know she will go to her deathbed without ever getting real. Frustrating to watch and unimaginable to think of actually living through. This movie has a tough subject that I am sure was no picnic for the cast but I believe they did some good here.
