NotesA bachelor fulfills a promise to his mother who has just died to look after his schizophrenic brother who also has epilepsy. Their relationship at first difficult since they don't really know each other matures with a nostalgic fishing trip. Garner is an affable but limited actor and it was Woods and Laurie who won the Emmies as did the screenwriter, the director and the film.
