Fine film - fine acting by all the cast
17 September 1999 | by (brightwater, new zealand) – See all my reviews

I always enjoy Ann Bancroft as a great actress. She played her usual great character in this film. Kimberlee Peterson should be seen more often in the future. She played a wonderful part, both as the young girl as well as the protective 'mother' for the family.
