Not a chick flick
5 April 2003 | by grant1971See all my reviews

This film is labeled as `Genre: Drama, Female'. It's NOT! When I think of female dramas or `chick flicks' I think of the typical "woman making it (or not) in man's world" (Steel Magnolias, Thelma and Louise) or sappy overly emotional Cinderella story (Never Been Kissed ands about a thousand others I can't think of now). This is not one of those. This is a drama. An excellent drama that, coincidently, has a primarily female cast.

I just saw "Marion Bridge" at the Arizona International Film Festival. What a great movie! Well balanced with characters you can feel. It is about siblings and the LOVE/hate relationships between. It's a strong truthful script without the over the top soapbox agenda so common to independent films. The cast draws you in completely. If you have a sibling, watch this movie. If not then. watch this movie!

Oh, and Molly Parker. Wow!
