Where are you now Zelda?
22 December 2008 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

At this point in time one must wonder what Zelda Harris is doing, for her performance in this movie is nothing short of outstanding. Similarly, and despite the potentially awkward ethereal plot device, delicately handled by Jud Taylor, Elizabeth McGovern delivers convincingly and makes talking to herself naturally believable.

Showing it's age, and McGovern's performance as a White Woman is at times uncomfortably (maybe even realistically) stiff, this movie excels in its great story, controlled direction, and strong character performances.

Seven out of Ten, for slightly diminished social relevance eleven years after its release date, but high marks for production, performances, and heart-warming interpersonal relationships.
