NotesDespite having Forsyth as director and Christine Lahti in the main part the film fails to hold one's attention. The mother of two young girls commits suicide and an aunt whom they've never met comes to look after them. There is something odd about her and the film is partly a psychological study of her. From the novel by Marilynne Robinson
