Make no mistake, this ia a dark movie, and a gothic true-life horror story. I saw a trailer which praised the performances, and I would very much agree. If you are thinking of Connie Stevns as the ultra cute 60's icon, and Tatum O'Neal from her early roles, you are in for a shock. Connie Stevens does not appear except in voice over, but it is based on true events from her life. Set and shot in Boonville, MO in the 1950's, it tells the tale of a small town woman whose brother brings her home from a huge mental asylum after nearly 20 years. There is also a relentless flood of the Missouri River at the time. He believes love can save his sister, although the matron of the asylum (Piper Laurie) and Grace herself keep saying she really is crazy. Tatum O'Neal and Penelope Ann Miller give wrenching performances, and the rest of the cast is very good also. The R rating is hardly deserved (one loving sex scene featuring a married couple), and some violence. Whether you will like it or not is a matter of personal taste. I do not think the work "enjoyed" applies at all, as it is so dark, but all awards won; best drama, best leading and best supporting actresses New York International Film Festival 2012, and best drama Los Angeles Women's International Film Festival 2011 seem well deserved to me. Tatum O'Neal is amzing.

This was an unknown film to me but I watched based on the only other reviewer. Don't miss this heart-wrenching movie. Tatum O'Neal is phenomenal in this part. The whole cast is sensational. I'm in awe of this film and those who made it, namely Connie Stevens who is the narrator and the small girl in the film. Don't miss watching this, I just can't believe how magnificent it was from beginning to end. Again, Tatum delivered an Oscar-worthy performance - just, well remarkable.

Tatum ONeil's performance was awesome. Other actors left a lot to be disired and the production choppy at best, but Tatum did a great job of "bringing home" mental illness and the damage wrought by institutionalization.

At first I thought this was going to be a Lifetime/Hallmark channel type of movie but it surprised me by actually having decent acting and a good storyline. Having a mentally ill family member back in the 50's could not have been easy since there were not many options for treatment other than institutions. This family has to deal with a mentally unstable woman who disrupts the life's of everyone who comes into contact with her. It is supposedly base on a true story but I'm sure it was embellished quite a bit. Still a good movie.

I loved this movie. It deals with family love and loss, mental illness and those that are affected by it in loving someone ill. I cried for Grace, for Landy and for Bea throughout the entire movie. Very dark and may be too disturbing for some.

The movie was very well produced and directed. It was taken from true events. The movie held my interest from beginning to end. There were moments in the movie that I found disturbing and very thought provoking, however, as a whole, I really enjoyed this movie tremendously. Tatum O'Neil gave an outstanding performance. I do recommend this movie and gave it a 5 star rating.

Based on real life events, it takes us on a nostalgic trip into the freer and more innocent days of rural Missouri in the 1950s as remembered by a young girl during a summer visit to her uncle, aunt and cousin. The uncle attempts to help his sister by having her released from a mental asylum and taking her back to their small hometown which has no law because theSheriff is in another town. He persists in this dispite the advice of the church minister and friends who know the story. The movie covers this three month period in summer as recollected by the 11-year-old visiting girl cousin.

I loved the dramatization of real life events. This was not a docu-drama, this was a real movie story, based on real events 60 years ago. Since it was 1950 in rural Missouri, the music, the colloquial phrases, the extra-friendliness (very much like Southern Hospitality) are all appropriate and not your typical background of contemporary movies. As the movie is about a Grace B. Jones (you'll understand the B. in her name after watch the movie) who is in and out of sanity, the story is not going to be upbeat, but this is balanced with the other circumstances and things going on in the movie which are upbeat at times.

The movie is real to life, I felt.

The acting and actors are excellent!

And, the Connie Stevens of film and music is the little girl who spent the summer there, away from the Bronx! This is her actual memory of that summer, and the people she established friendships with that she maintained after!! Some minor literary license, but in the end Connie narrates an epilogue that certifies the events!!!
