This movie like many others by directed by Lawrence Kasdan, (Silverado, Grand Canyon, Big chill), have a wonderful eclectic cast and real characters. He casts wonderfully gifted actors and gives them deep and authentic characters to flesh out. He also blends various story lines into an incredible weave of celluloid bliss. Mumford unfolds into this deep and layered beautiful story of what impact people have on each other. Whether they realize it or not.
