a very nice movie, Juliette Lewis is very endearing
10 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

I don't believe I've ever seen Juliette Lewis (JL) in a movie before so this was a good way to be introduced to her. I agree with the other comments about her doing well with her voice-I could just listen to her speak (kind of like how I feel about enjoying the way the British, Australians,and New Zealanders speak no matter what they are talking about). I found it was kind of like Anne of Green Gables (AGG) as well since the little girl in the movie who did some great acting wants to be known as Anne when she is in Baton Rouge is in order to "reinvent herself" like her aunt says. She did have a tomboy, tough side to her like Anne Shirley, and her grandmother did seem to be like the woman who takes in Anne to live with her and Matthew on the farm in AGG. She definitely isn't up to the acting talent of Megan Follows (where is she now-I'd love to see her in more movies) but still she does a commendable job. I think the woman that played the girl's mother in this movie was quite believable as a woman who had some mental difficulties. At the beginning I was wondering if the sister who had gone on to better things would be kind of prissy to everyone like she was overly glad to get out of the little farm area but I was pleasantly surprised to see that she was very gentle, kind, and loving to all. I would have liked to know exactly what her job was as she was referred to as a "working girl" from Magnolia, but what did she actually do that made her afford having someone take of the house, how she can have such a great car, clothes, and even mention putting Anne in a private school someday. That was the only question mark I found in the movie and I was glad to see the father be seen as a smart (yet slow) guy when he helped protect the plants at the nursery. Another part of the storyline I think they could have expanded on is having the father's boss congratulate him of making wise choices in regards to the plants when the big storm hit-he mentions he wants him to take of things but it would have been nice to have closure w/the boss coming back to say thanks for all his help.
