Movie Info

Susanna Styron made her feature directorial debut with this family drama, an adaptation of a 1978 short story by her father, novelist William Styron (Sophie's Choice). Paul Whitehurst (voice of Martin Sheen) recalls Depression-era events in Tidewater, Virginia, when he was ten years old. In the summer of 1935, lonely young Paul (Scott Terra), with his strict father (Darrell Larson) and fatally ill mother (Deborah Hedwall), is raised in a boring, middle-class way of life, so mundane it leads him

A heart-affecting drama about a youngster who learns that we must give each death that enters our life the attention it deserves.

Styron's directing skill here bodes well for the future. She achieves a warm, rich ensemble with a wide range of actors.
