It only impresses with its fine ear for colorful Southern dialogue and for Erbe's energetic performance.
A satisfying screen version of Josephine Humphrey's 1978 novel about the education of a young woman's sentiments about love and marriage.
A rewarding drama
Good performances help prevent this once from overdoing its quirkiness.
This is a rich ensemble, offering unexpected pleasures throughout the majority of the film.
Not a bad little movie, but I don't know about the overall message. Especially with the older sister, sticking with that guy after the two awful things he did (the second she had not found out about by the end of the film). I couldn't help but think there was definitely another installment to this story that didn't have a happy ending!
I liked the main character, but she didn't appear to have a lot of substance, only really there for the stronger characters to bounce off, and you don't really get a good sense of what makes her tick. Perhaps she doesn't really fit in there, I thought the ending was good for her.
I guess at face value it is a nice little story about finding yourself in a small town, (particularly in the case of the mother), but there were a few things that bothered me about it. Maybe I read too much into it!
The title seems to vary in meaning throughout the family focussed on in this film, the sense of family and love all exist through the main character who seems to be the bond holding everything together.
One of those sort of films that you find watchable, yet has no real structure to it.
