One can definitely see the "King Lear" influence in the film. The portrayal of the father-daughter relationship falling apart is well written and acted, but the story takes so many jerky twists that all smoothness or flow is lost. By the end the audience is left lukewarm, not quite crying but not quite satisfied.
The movie was actually better than the book (which I forced to read!) It had all the power the author wanted to express because of Lange and Pfeiffer who were devastatingly good. The supporting cast were good too but its intially the main two leads that steal the show
Filmen har et enormt potensiale, og bildene i starten er episk vakre fra den amerikanske landsbygden. Dessverre klarer ikke Jessica Lange å levere slik hun bruker å gjøre, og værst av alt er faren - spilt av Jason Robards. Han får hele seansen til å bli nærmere enn onsdagsfilm på TvNorge enn en Digital Versitaile Disk-opplevelse! Men som sagt; mange flotte bilder!
An amazing and courageous movie. Phenomenal story plot. Here is an endearing movie that will leave you a bit teary-eyed. Great cast- Jessica Lange, Michelle Pfeiffer, Colin Firth, Jason Robards, and Jennifer Jason Leigh. Definitely worthy.
One of my favorite movies to date. I have seen this movie several times and never grow tired of it. A very dark, disturbing and yet wonderful film. Jessica Lange, as usual, is amazing as were all the actors in this great film!
A complete surprise I thought initially it was a story about family...until it went below the surface and into the deep!!! It was disturbing to see how everyone was/is effected by family and yet we/I are constantly captivated by image /surface
