Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

Oprah Winfrey Book Club selections are frequently rushed into production as TV movies, but few are as shrewdly adapted as this take on Mary McGarry Morris's bestseller. Director Rod Holcomb nails the atmosphere of small-town America at the crossroads between the relative calm of 1950s paternalism and the social storm that would attend the crises of the 60s. Sissy Spacek stars as the lonely divorcee in small-town Vermont who forges a dangerous liaison with the mysterious Beau Bridges. If there is a problem, it's that there's too much going on to let the storylines gel.
