"Fat Rose and Squeaky" is a super-sleeper that hasn't even surfaced on RT's horizon yet. But it's a great film with a powerful mix of fantasy and reality that delights even as it keeps you guessing. The script displays classic quality and Cicely Tyson's performance is nothing short of miraculous: an event of hallucinatory mystery and beauty.
The title characters almost steal the show as a couple of rambunctious, sarcastic troublemakers with a Keystone Kops kinetic and an engrossingly vicious streak.The clash between Bonnie (Louise Fletcher) and her opportunistic granddaughter, Christine, will be heartening and empowering to any senior striving to maintain his/her lifestyle in the face of family pressure to divest and move into custodial care.
