A study of family relationships
26 August 1999 | by Mike1201See all my reviews

A small enjoyable film of family relationships and hopes of prosperity that override all else. Hume Cronyn and James Earl Jones make it all worthwhile. A pleasant way to pass the time on a quiet evening. You could do worse.
