Ernie Hudson and Cast in Clover
16 February 2008 | by (Glendale, CA) – See all my reviews

This story was done with skill and heart. The audience that loves family will love this haunting movie. Ernie Hudson played the kind of character he should play more often, revered and revering husband and father.

The subject matter was family and dealt with issues across the board including American family, nuclear family, family in-laws, and family of man. If you want to see difficult American cultural family issues dealt with using real dialog without using four letter words, this is your movie.

Because of the profound sincerity of the acting the movie is close to the heart, and will be remembered.

The cast was outstanding. The dialog was warm and honest. Kudos to everyone, including the writers.
