This movie teaches the great importance of finding ones self and making your own way. It shows how much someone can influence you and how you may not see that influence until they are gone. Christine Lahti is fabulous in this. She portrays a cold hearted widow that takes out her pain and past mistakes on her soft spoken daughter Ruth played by Nicolle Tom. Nicolle also does a great job, very different from Maggie she played on The Nanny.She is very deep and emotional, not typical of her previous roles. I hope to see her in more films soon. I really enjoyed this movie. One to watch with your mom, after seeing Maylene you might really appreciate yours! I hope they show this one again soon!
