I watched this film by happy accident. My husband picks dvds by a list of 3 he wants to watch and 2 he selects with eyes closed and just reaching on the shelf. Wow! I was really impressed. As a social worker, I am aware that most of all families are dysfunctional. The screen writers got it right here! I winced at the inferred abuse; much worse than the actual screen images. The acting was terrific and I agree with one other reviewer that the tough guy character was not quite right. He was too well groomed, and too mature to be riding around on stingrays. Gina Rowlands was superbly believable her character. She was a universal Everywoman. Thanks to the cast and crew for a wonderfully insightful and loving film!
