Good film for the whole family
8 August 1999 | by See all my reviews

A potent film that depicts in a realist manner the terrible crisis a family will go through afer a major drama.

Story:

A mother commits suicide after her husband has left her while her oldest son is 9 and her youngest a baby. Then after 8 years this father comes back to his kids. The youngest young grows close to him as the oldest one, played by Timothy Hutton (who gives a great performance), hates him and so on...

Very well played. Very good story.

A must for families going through rough times.
