Grabbed this one from the public library, sure I would enjoy it as I have other Kevin Sullivan films. For the first hour I did. Not as sweet or wholesome as his other films - I expected it wouldn't be. What I didn't expect was how prideful, unforgiving and selfish half the cast of characters would be, right up until they died. Deathbed reconciliations make for cloying dialog. The characters are quite likable when first introduced, but then become annoyingly shallow. The actors did superb jobs, given the awful material. This and beautiful cinematography up the score - but fail to save the film from its thin and contrived plot.
