Storyline

The Great American Family at its worst. James Tyrone is an aging actor and skinflint whose miserliness has been the ruin of his family. His wife, Mary, has been a morphine addict since the birth of their youngest son, Edmund. Their eldest son, Jamie is an alcoholic, unable an unwilling to find work on his own, he has been 'forced' to take up his father's profession. Edmund, who has been away as a sailor has returned home sick and awaits the doctor's diagnosis of consumption. Each of them is so self-centered, and self-pitying, that they cannot help one-another. None of them even know what they want and they can't bear it. Written by Al Jacques <agjacque@intrex.net>

User Reviews

An actor's movie, this.

If you are an actor, or want to be, or if you simply love to see consummate acting, watch this film. It left me used up and drained, in a way that only total absorption can achieve. A cast of finely skilled craftsmen as ever you would desire bring to their director, their designers, their author, the whole service of their art. Of course, they are part of the Stratford Festival (Canada) and the benefit of the disciplines a repertory company demands shine. Not a household name (outside our Home and Native Land) among them, and what does that matter anyway. Buy the video. You will watch it again and again.
