  • Director Bruce Beresford's adaptation of the Josephine Humphrey novel about an eccentric Charleston family in turmoil is considered the third in his southern trilogy, following DRIVING MISS DAISY and CRIMES OF THE HEART. Starring Albert Finney as charming retiree Warren Odom, the film is narrated by his sensitive adolescent daughter, Lucille (Kathryn Erbe). When his wife, Helen (Jill Clayburgh), walks out on the family leaving only a laconic farewell note, Warren goes into shock, unable to accept her departure. But after he and Lucille have searched the surrounding area, he realizes that she's gone for good and sinks into a depression. Lucille, an honors student, must leave high school to care for her despondent father. Gradually they learn to live with the loss, as Warren strikes up a romance with widowed hairdresser Vera Delmage (Piper Laurie) and Lucille develops a relationship with Wayne Frobiness (Ethan Hawke). As soon as the waters appear calm, Warren's other daughter, the world-weary Rae (Suzy Amis) arrives with husband Billy McQueen (Kyle MacLachlan), announcing that she's pregnant and will be around for awhile.
