The Blackwater Lightship is a rare television treat. Having read the book i was spectacle to view this production. However this film is rare as it exceeds the brilliance of the book. Acting legend and Oscar winner Dianne Wiest is the bravest performer in the film. Her character Lily is cold yet for Wiest to portray this from her usual loving characters is extraordinary. You feel a closer bond with Dianne's character than any other. Angela Lansbury gives the funniest performance as Dora, the mad grandmother. A true treat to see her. Gina McKee however has the support of the audience in battling with her mother and grandmother and loosing her brother to AIDS. Its rare to see the portrayal of three women who has loose connections with one another to be shown in such a sentimental and loving way. A true classic! The three generations of actresses are magnificent and this film will be viewed as a brilliant portrayal of the affects AIDS has on a family.
