Decoration Day

Robert Markowitz (1990)

PG Certificate


Our Score
James Garner here swaps the wisecracking persona he is normally associated with in TV series like The Rockford Files for something a lot more serious, playing a retired and recently widowed judge who finds the strength to carry on when he hears from a childhood friend left disillusioned by war service. It's a moving, if rather slow story, but Garner is always worth watching, and he is ably supported by a cast that includes Bill Cobbs and the wonderful Ruby Dee.


A retired judge, mourning the loss of his wife, finds new purpose in life thanks to a fresh challenge involving an old friend. Sensitive drama, starring James Garner, Bill Cobbs, Judith Ivey and Laurence Fishburne.
