31 March 1999 | by Ricardo-38See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite Jeanne Craine films. I often think of her in the attic sorting through the box of memories while her daughter asks her about some of the items in the box, especially when I have sorted through my own mother's memory boxes in her attic. I wish this were on video. I'd dearly like to share this with MY daughter. Ricardo-38
