Movie Info

A woman has a hard time embracing reality after a personal tragedy in this made-for-cable drama. Molly (Vinessa Shaw) is a young widow having a hard time putting her life back together after her husband's death. Molly obsesses over the leftover artifacts of his life, and she believes that his spirit walks the house they used to share, though her attempts to photograph the ghost are a failure. Molly supports herself by working at a photo shop, where the manager (Amy Van Nostrand) is convinced Molly needs to remarry, and isn't shy about dropping hints. But Molly seems to have built an emotional wall around herself until she meets an uncouth neighbor (Tim Blake Nelson) who lives in the neighborhood with his uncle. While she doesn't think much of him at first, Molly in time makes friends with the man, and under his spell, she develops a daring and impulsive streak. Bereft was directed by Tim Daly, who also appears in a supporting role; the cast also includes Edward Herrmann and Marsha Mason.

Its conclusion is unsatisfying and probably undeserving for at least one of the characters leaving us wondering why we were grieving at all and was it worth it?

Audience Reviews for Bereft

Gorgeous cinematography of Vermont scenery. Interesting concept for the story but it never took off. Dull & flat.

The only good part, and I can barely say that was Tim Daly. The cinematography was beautiful; and I tip my hat to Tim for his direction, but I really was not into this movie...There's not may movies that I have negative comments about...sorry.

A bit of an odd film. Some really beautiful Vermont scenery makes the film pleasand enough to look at. Well photographed as well. No the cheeriest movie of all time. The cast is good, but it sure was boring sometimes.
