Remarkable acting by Leslie Ann Warren
25 December 2011 | by truehimselfSee all my reviews

This movie is a well made family and relationship drama. It's got a good story and is accompanied by very good acting. Based on these elements alone, such movie should merit a truly decent recommendation.

However,something bigger is happening here; even bigger than the good storyline. It is called Leslie Ann Warren. Leslie Ann Warren delivers a performance so enthralling, so captivating, it was utterly mesmerizing and for me overshadowed just about anything else. Talking about Oscar worthy performance.

Warren's presence fills the screen with so much grace, presence, passion for life, charisma, and sheer liveliness, that you feel more than adequately rewarded for the time you spent watching. As far as I am concerned, Leslie Ann Warren may just be the perfect woman, at least judging from the way her character comes to life on the screen. She was sensitive, full of love, warm, full of life and on top of that was irresistibly beautiful. Not the kind of overwhelming glamorous beauty that you sometimes see in Hollywood, but the kind of beauty that warms your heart and makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Another emerging star is Bridget White, which fills the screen with such natural presence that you forget it is actually acting you are watching. Simply brilliant.

Watching those two incredible individuals delivered me a watching experience that was enjoyable, stood out from the basic story, while at the same time making it more involving, an element (involvement) often depending more on the collective quality of individual performances, that the plain storyline.
