I loved this film...
16 October 2003 | by kal66See all my reviews

I saw the film in 1992 at one of its few screening. It left a powerful impression. It is brilliantly acted and beautifully shot. Joan Cusack proves that she is one of America's most underrated actresses. And I keep wondering why Peter Gallagher isn't doing something better... ah well.
