Beautifully made.
2 July 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this piece. It's very simple and straightforward, no car chases here, just people talking to each other, and they talk so well! Hume Cronyn and James Earl Jones carry the show, and they do it with such grace and style that you almost wish it wouldn't end. Written by Horton Foote, this is one to seek out if you can find it. A deceptively simple family drama, that is actually suitable for the entire family. Very well done.
