Critic Reviews for The Autumn Heart

All Critics (1)

Literal and schmaltzy as TV Movie, Steven Maler's old-fashioned family melodrama, about a dying mother and her three daughters, is big in heart but small in vision; it should play well on Lifetime.

Audience Reviews for The Autumn Heart

Best Ally Sheedy movie since The Breakfast Club. Plot Summary: When a school bus driving woman (Tyne Daly) has a heart attack, she makes one request of her three daughters (Ally Sheedy, Marla Sucharetza, Marceline Hugo) - she wants them to find their long lost brother, who was taken away by their father (Jack Davidson) 16 years ago. What they discover is that while they have struggled, their father has become a wealthy man and their brother is in school at Harvard.
