A very unique and interesting film
5 December 2001 | by See all my reviews

This was a very underrated film that should have been picked up by an independent studio and released to the public. I was fortunate enough to see it at the Seattle Film Festival and I was blown away by the film. It was excellently written and directed by Joshua Miller and featured first-rate performances by Piper Laurie and Kirstie Alley. It offers a unique look at living in a celebrity family and coping with the lows of life even when it seems like you already have everything.

I'm wondering if this gem of a film will ever be released on video or dvd. I would definitely add it to my collection.
