Audience Reviews for The Evening Star

This sequel to Terms of Endearment is almost as endearing as the original. Although it didn't need a sequel, it is realistic to see that the characters didn't live happily ever after when the movie ended. And to see what other problems they deal with. I liked this movie, it was a good drama with good actors and it's a very realistic drama.
