Movie Info

In this slyly humorous family drama about what we inherit (and don't inherit) from our parents, Grace (Lauren Lee Smith) has not spoken to her recently deceased father, a fabled filmmaker, in years. She surprises her confidant (Jennifer Beals) and herself when, on a trip to pick up some of his belongings, she offers to help put together a retrospective of his work and finds herself influenced in strange and significant ways. 9In this slyly humorous family drama about what we inherit (and don't inherit) from our parents, Grace (Lauren Lee Smith) has not spoken to her recently deceased father, a fabled filmmaker, in years.

Critic Reviews for Cinemanovels

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (2)

A thoughtful thesis on the melodrama but a letdown in its attempt to serve as an affecting example of that genre.

Top Critic

The actors make up for the relative thinness of the material. Smith navigates the emotional terrain with great skill.

Top Critic

Smith gives a stellar performance in the role, building a character whose motivation is a mystery but whose emotions are deeply felt. Too bad the film doesn't really have anywhere to go with such talent.

Audience Reviews for Cinemanovels

½

I suggest turning on your television in the early afternoon and channel surfing. You're bound to find something equal to - or greater than - Miles' half baked erotica.
