A traumatic event sends a musician (Sedgwick) back to her hometown in an effort to reunite with the daughters she abandoned. To do so, she must confront her abusive ex-husband (Quinn), from whom she fled years ago.
After rock musician Randall Pritchard's fatal car accident, his wife and band mate Delia Byrd drags their unwilling daughter Cissy from his California home to her own, a Georgia backwater. There they move in with Delia's hard-handed first partner, now terminal Clint Windsor, how she left with their daughters Amanda and Dede, who are now summoned to the 'reassembled' family. Clint's ma completes the messy picture. Written by
This is a nice movie in spite of the low rating that viewers have given it. And I'm not surprised that it got such ratings. Most Americans would not like this movie because it doesn't have enough action. This is a movie about real life relationships, past and present; about how different people adapt to changing situations; and about how life's decisions are made. This is a movie about how real people live, what they say, and how they love. I especially liked the ending. I think most of the acting was good too. I thought all three of Delia's daughters did a fine job. I especially liked her youngest daughter, Cissy; wise beyond her years. I can remember her from "The Blue Car". I was so frustrated with Amanda's rote religious jumbo that I wanted her mother to grab her and give her a good shaking. But if you love someone enough, I suppose you often put up with that sort of thing.
