There is very little wasted motion, to be sure, but also very little real-life like ambience.

As for Sissy Spacek, I can't think of a sounder role to reflect the unique qualities that make her so special.

Quaintly shot and paced, not unlike Shotgun Stories, but insanely over-written, Lake City dumps on audiences a plot that consists of 500-some-odd puzzle pieces that all come together exactly as you expect.

Moore and Hill's script plunges [Sissy] Spacek in a mawkish stew of banality and improbability composed of bits and pieces of earlier roles.

Contrived and too serious for its own good, it's hard to imagine any distributor loving it so much they want to let the rest of the world see it.
