good, home kinda movie that has some very true and powerful points
26 October 2004 | by goblingalSee all my reviews

I like the movie but without saying too much to spoil it the scene with winona, rob and debi richter (if you watched the movie you know what scene) that one scene is a bit disturbing but other then that the movie is one of my faves. but to this day i can't watch debi richter in anything. I think winona portrayed a powerful performance with a character that is confused and lost on life, jason robards as the grandfather is very well portrayed, the setting i couldn't see it in any other setting besides Texas where it is set it seems to fit the movie and the atmosphere tremendously. rob lowe as a mentally retarted young man rounds the movie out very well as good as his portrayal in the outsiders 4 years earlier.
