Storyline

Charleston, South Carolina. The Odoms have lived a life of the traditions of the American south in their longtime, large family beach front home. That tradition is turned upside down when younger daughter, bright high school senior Lucille Odom, arrives home to find a note from her mother, Helen Odom, that note which states that she has left for good. This move has been a long time coming for Helen, although the actual act was somewhat spontaneous based on evidence around the family home. The family patriarch, retired Warren Odom, believes his wife will eventually return. To help with the situation, Warren and Lucille request the return of Warren's eldest daughter/Lucille's older sister, Rae Odom. However, Rae has her own issues as she arrives with her new Yankee husband, Billy McQueen, and news that they got married because she's pregnant, about which she doesn't seem too happy. These goings-on affect impressionable Lucille the most, she who is trying to find her own way in life and ... Written by Huggo

Kathryn Erbe too old to play teenager
18 October 2013 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Lucille Odom (Kathryn Erbe) is about to graduate from high school. One day she returns home to find her mother Helen (Jill Clayburgh) had run off. Her father Warren (Albert Finney) is a stubborn southern patriarch who can't accept it. Ethan Hawke plays Lucille's best friend who hopes to be more. Rae (Suzy Amis) returns with her new husband Billy McQueen (Kyle MacLachlan).

It's a meandering low simmering family drama. There isn't much style in the directing. It has a lazy southern living feel in this slice of life. Albert Finney isn't playing a likable character. Kathryn Erbe is just too old for the role. It's really noticeable when she's paired up with Ethan Hawke. Overall there is some good actors doing material that wants to be better.
