Storyline

Charleston, South Carolina. The Odoms have lived a life of the traditions of the American south in their longtime, large family beach front home. That tradition is turned upside down when younger daughter, bright high school senior Lucille Odom, arrives home to find a note from her mother, Helen Odom, that note which states that she has left for good. This move has been a long time coming for Helen, although the actual act was somewhat spontaneous based on evidence around the family home. The family patriarch, retired Warren Odom, believes his wife will eventually return. To help with the situation, Warren and Lucille request the return of Warren's eldest daughter/Lucille's older sister, Rae Odom. However, Rae has her own issues as she arrives with her new Yankee husband, Billy McQueen, and news that they got married because she's pregnant, about which she doesn't seem too happy. These goings-on affect impressionable Lucille the most, she who is trying to find her own way in life and ... Written by Huggo

Beautiful Film With a Superb Kathryn Erbe Performance
25 June 2015 | by dianerpessler-46164See all my reviews

Director Bruce Beresford brings Josephine Humphrey's beautiful novel with sensitivity and amazing insight. His use of locations and the stunning backdrop is done with an eye for the landscape, just as his depiction of the characters is done with an instinct and empathy for humanity. Those characters are portrayed wonderfully by Albert Finney and Jill Clayburgh as very real people and not simply as caricatures of typical Southerners. Outstanding in the role of the young girl Lucille is the gifted Kathryn Erbe. She is nothing less than superb and would have been a true star making role if the film had been more successful at the box office. Although the film was not seen by many, Erbe's performance is some of her finest work and her incredible talent shines even among the members of this veteran cast. She is deeply moving in this film and Erbe makes Lucille one of the most memorable young women in cinema history.
