Stunning performance by Woodward
20 October 2002 | by (Munchkinland) – See all my reviews

Joanne Woodward gives an absolutely amazing performance as Mary Follet!!!! I can't stress enough how amazing her performance was. I was left breathless.

It's about Mary Follet (Woodward ofcourse). She's married, she has a five year old son and she's pregnant. Her husband gets a call that his father is sick. He goes to see him and He's supposed to come back the next night--but instead he gets killed in a car accident. So there she is, with her parents and extended family, with a five year old son and another baby on the way. If you want to see an incredibly performance that will leave you breathless, see this movie!
