Critic Reviews for The Subject Was Roses
Ulu Grosabrd's theatrical film, based on Pulitzer Prize winning play, is an intense family melodrama, well acted by Patricia Neal and Jack Albertson as the feuding parents and Martin Sheen as their Viet vet son.
The "kitchen sink" drama was largely effective because of the superb acting and dialogue.
Fine drama featuring Patricia Neal and Jack Albertson, based on stage play.
