Inspiring; the only person you spend your whole life with is yourself.....
17 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A quote from this movie which is a surprise; when Kellie Martin says this, it reflects the growth and maturity of her character, and the choices she eventually makes within the family dynamic.

This movie centers around the family; three adult sisters who each respond differently to life's problems. I loved the fact that the story was not trite, nor was it a "knock-down, drag out" negative movie about dysfunctional families on Christmas; (If you want to see imbeciles throwing a turkey at someone; that scene has been done to death.....the movie with Holly Hunter, ""Home for the Holidays"", for example.)

Kellie Martin is excellent, as the independent, stronger sibling. Janet Carroll skillfully portrays the alcoholic mother, and is quite memorable in these type of roles. The issues of divorce, jealousy, and Al-Anon are addressed in a realistic, and helpful manner; I think the writer and director of this movie did an excellent job.

Rent or buy this movie for the holidays....it is affirming; without being banal or superfluous, like most movies about family problems.
