Northern England gloom vs. Hollywood glitz
23 March 1999 | by (Lisbon, Portugal) – See all my reviews

Very funny and ultimately very moving portrait of long-lost sisters reuniting. Throw in dysfunctional families, daytime tv shows and pseudo-glamour "a la" California and you find yourself thoroughly engaged in this gently-paced made for tv movie. Julie Walters is superb, Victoria Wood delivers a surprisingly subtle performance, and Celia Imrie and Thora Hird are hilarious in their slightly eccentric roles. Don't miss this one!
