Two women living with cancer: one in the prime of her life, one in her twilight years, face the biggest challenge of life as they come to terms with death. Living in the same town filled with eccentric characters, their joint challenge teaches the two women, and those who love them invaluable life lessons. CHANGING HEARTS focuses on the moving relationship which develops between Amber Connors, blessed with a vibrant, sunny beauty and vast compassion and the irritable, bossy, older woman she befriends, Betty Miller, whose vestiges of vanity and proud carriage put the lie to her reclusive persona. Betty has spent her entire adult life building her defenses, only to have them systematically worn down by the neighboring nursing home philanderer, Johnny Pinkley, - an aging charmer and hopeless romantic determined to win back Betty's love after breaking her heart decades earlier by going off to the Korean War. Meanwhile, Amber stumbles onto a romantic dilemma of her own: Jason a dashing but... Written by Anonymous

This is simply a beautiful film.
23 July 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

If you're in the mood for a good dosage of tears and laughs, "Colored Eggs" finds a perfect balance and delivers powerful performances by Faye Dunaway and Lauren Holly. This is the best Dunaway work I've seen in years and certainly Holly's finest moment in a dramatic role to date. Director Martin Guigui portrays a "Robert Altman" like world of eccentric and soulful behavior, by tastefully utilizing the inevitable pains of facing cancer head on and opening a window full of hope and desire to live each day to the fullest. Edie McClurg is wonderful in her portrayal of the kind hearted Nurse with perpetual intent to help her patients to no avail. The characters of the Baptist women, led by veteran actress Janet Carol, serve up great comic relief. Cool cameos by musicians Earl Scruggs, Randy Scruggs and Rita Coolidge. Artistic cinematography. This is simply a beautiful film.
