Dennie has returned from a year among the hippies to her superficial, image-conscious suburban family. She must face their disapproval of her actions. They refuse to even try to understand.

You Can't Go Home Again
18 March 2017 | by fouregycatsSee all my reviews

A young woman runs away from home, and she returns to find the same old dysfunctional family and the same old issues that made her leave. She struggles to resume her place in the family, but she isn't the same person she used to be.

Sally Field is now 70 years old, and Lane Bradbury is 78. This movie gives us a nostalgic look back to the time of hippie culture, but it also shows us that what goes on within families is timeless.
