Movie Info

A seven year old and his mother cope with his father's death in an auto accident. His grieving mother is in denial, and the rush of well-meaning relatives fails to help the situation. The boy observes the reaction of adults to the death of his father, taking refuge in the world and games of children to escape the sadness. Mary (Jean Simmons) slowly accepts her husband's death and begins to adjust to the devastating loss. The story is based on the Pulitzer Prize winning novel by James Agee. Robert Preston plays the friendly, ill-fated husband whose brother Ralph (Pat Hingle) is the local undertaker in this dramatic tear jerker.

Audience Reviews for All the Way Home

Sober and slow paced film is well directed with some sharp observations. The film contains a fine performance from Aline MacMahon and an award level one from Jean Simmons, this is some of her best work in a career full of excellent characterizations.
