  • I Love this movie. Mar 20, 2010
    by IreneF

    I agree with the other reviewer, this is Jessica Lange's best film role. The story captures the essence of a family in transition after the death of the husband and breadwinner of the family. Beth (Mom) is trying to rebuild their lives while still in the grieving process, the relocation from suburban life to Baltimore is a shock that her sons seem to cope with better than she does. Her depression takes over and she doesn't even see her younger sons desperate attempts to get his mother back. A beautiful and touching film, sad, but has some funny moments, too, usually involving Joan Cusack as the ditzy neighbor that seduces the older son. Wonderful and poignant movie. Get your hanky ready.

  • A real chick flick... Mar 14, 2009
    by niks

    I watched this movie years ago as a married woman and fell in love with it.Now as a young widow myself I can relate to it much more.In my opinion one of Jessica Langes best roles ever. She shows the true deepth and determination of all woman when thrown in the deep end. She works hard to support her kids and goes through all the trials and emotions that come with teenagers. it is tough being a single parent.Then she has a new love interest to make her feel special again though another relationship is the last thing on her mind.One of the first real chick flick movies. A must see I never tire of. Enjoy.
