Dwell is Dwull!!!!!
16 February 2005 | by meezaSee all my reviews

I dwell on the humdrum experience that is the indie film "Cavedweller". Someone should have "redlighted" this "Cavedweller" and eternally shelve it in its cave. Kyra Sedgwick stars as Delia Byrd, a recent widower who returns to her small hometown in Georgia in hoping to reunite with her adolescent daughters from her first marriage; or in other words the Bird left her California dwell to get Georgia on her mind again. This movie does deserve lifetime achievements; meaning it should only be playing on the "Lifetime" channel. Sedgwick, who is Kevin Bacon's wife in real life, proves that Mr. Bacon is the only one in that dwellhold who is worthy of bringing home the acting bacon. Sorry, Kyra! I guess I got "kyrad" away! Aidan Quinn plays Delia's moribund alcoholic ex-husband who pleads to her to live out his final days with her at his side with their two daughters. Quinn continues his cold thespian streak. He was a mighty acting quinn at one time, but has not shined on screen since his work in "Legends of the Fall". How the legends fall quickly! Director Lisa Cholodenko's noncreative vision of "Cavedweller" was as dark & tedious as a cave itself. "Cavedweller" could have been much better! ** Needs Improvement
