Financial dependency keeps a woman with a husband that loathes her son from a previous marriage.
18 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

I've seen this movie and liked it. Channing plays the part of a mother of two almost grown children, a daughter that is adored by her stepfather and a son that is loathed. The daughter living at home with the parents enjoys a comfortable life, while the son is only visiting the family. The young man is only welcomed by his mother. His sister is protective of her favorite child status, sides with her stepfather to make the visit uncomfortable and awkward. While visiting he becomes very ill. Instead of drawing compassion and help his illness only serves to bring even more of his stepfather's mistreatment. The young man leaves in the throws of a terrible fever knowing that he can never return, nor will he ever see his mother again.
