Excellent cast, faithful to material
22 November 2004 | by erinobryenSee all my reviews

I read -Back When We Were Grownups- some years ago and I'm a big fan of Ann Tyler's novels. This broadcast was remarkably faithful to the book, and the casting, particularly in the principal roles, was truly inspired. This is what good acting is all about. Especially great to see the wonderful Blythe Danner. Peter Riegert as always brought warmth and subtlety to the role of the brother-in-law. I loved Jack Palance as Poppy, although he's so youthful it was necessary to suspend belief in his portrayal of a 100 year old man! Great set design, too, and subtle retro styling for the memory scenes. I always look forward to the Hallmark Hall of Fame specials for quality drama, great commercials, and beautiful Wagner-like theme music.
