Good Acting in an Irritating Film
3 July 2000 | by (Virginia) – See all my reviews

Since an earlier viewer seemed confused, I will begin by revealing the problem. Through a series of fast flashes it seems that Momma (Blythe Danner)was sexually abused by her father, and in a moment of reliving it accidentally shoots her daughter. Father and Son cover up the crime by dumping the car in the swamp (shades of Psycho) and burying daughter under the willow (Shades of Buried Child). Then a young girl comes by who may have done in her father for the same crime and her brother into the bargain. Hers is a most inconsistent character, and the plotting and writing makes her seem more unstable than Blythe Danner. The whole thing is second-rate Sam Sheppard. Danner, however, is excellent and Kurt Deutsch as her thirty year old son is a mesmerizing actor with a promising future. Watch out for him.
