3.0 out of 5 stars 'Widows' proves that there is definitely life after death !, February 3, 2003
This review is from: Widows (DVD)
I've always had a lot of time for the acting abilities of Mercedes Reuhl ('The Lost Child,' `What's Cooking?') and so with expectations high I put the DVD in, sat back, cracked open a cold one and readied myself for another great performance. Yes, I know that you're all now expecting me to ... all over her performance, but where Mercedes maintained a completely unflappable acting disposition, it has to be said that both eternally-annoying Rosie Perez and the emotion-lazy Brooke Shields both combined in trying their hardest in bringing this movie to its grazed knees ! 'Widows' is based on a British mini-series of the same name from back in the late 80s and whereas that was a six-parter, this is just a long ... two hours and forty-five minutes ! Colm Feore ('The Wrong Guy,' `The Red Violin') as Mr. Stein the luxury art gallery owner is a slow-paced delight to behold and, as you don't have to think too hard to figure out what the probable outcome will be, you can at the very least sit back, kick back and enjoy the penetratingly-hypnotic acting abilities of the great Mercedes Reuhl.[website]

Thank you for mentioning Mercedes Ruehl. I have been searching her films for a long time and no one seems to mention her or her exceptional talents!!
