User Reviews

 
This film embodies slow southern style and the struggle to be recognized.

Trains and golf crisscross this southern fried story of dysfunctional couples. The question is if you run to Oz will the wizard make you whole? Deirdre (Angelica Torn) shows us the ugly side of vulnerability as she looks for independence and her own sense of self. David Morse gives a tender performance as Karl the grounds keeper. Karl renders justice in his own way from his omnipresent position. Leighton (Ian Teal) plays the bumbling Lurch-like and misunderstood husband to Deirdre in comic relief, providing some of the films lighter moments. A cameo performance by James Gandolfini juxtaposes New York crassness to Southern sensibilities. While the trains in this film are used to depict time, travel and distance; the golf course is akin to the land of Oz. Oz has it's wizard (Karl) and it's wicked witch Veronica (Susan Aston). Miss Aston is delectable as the sexy, older and very very wicked witch. Director Ian Teal captures the feel and pace of life in the south. Writer Kathy Fehl has filled it with all the characters that populate that region of the country. This movie is a great afternoon vacation to the south.
