I remember watching this movie over and over again, when it was on tv. It's a complexed movie. There's an abusive husband, there's children involved, there's a cheating 2nd. husband. The 2nd. husband dies in a car accident with his girlfriend, then the 1st. husband ( the abusive one ) is dying of cancer and is bed ridden. Kyra comes back home with the daughter she had with husband number 2, and also wants to reconcile with the 2 daughters she left behind. The movie goes back and forth so you understand more of why she just left the way she did !! Kyra's real life husband, Kevin Bacon, has a small part at the beginning of the movie. He plays her 2nd. husband.

"Cavedweller" - I was disappointed about the Restricted rating. Families should ignore it. PG-13 seems much more appropriate for capturing its widest audience.

A "feel good" story with lots of forgiveness from a deeply compassionate central character. On her return from years of exile, she nurses formerly deranged, bipolar ex-husband through his final days. never revealing anything to diverse teenage daughters of violent murder threats from their father when she abandoned them as toddlers to "live and fight another day". A good story to share, though language betimes a bit colorful.

I bought this because of Aidan Quinn but was disappointed in his role in this movie. I felt that someone so close to dying would act in trying to make amends with his children but I don't think the writers agreed with me.

"Cavedweller" had conflict and resolution--characters seeking redemption, revenge, reunion with lost children--but when the conflict was resolved it didn't amount to much. You're left feeling like the dog that chased the bus until it finally stopped. Now what? Like Peggy Lee you ask, "Is that all there is?"

The plot revolved around Delia Byrd's (Kyra Sedgwick) return from Los Angeles to a small town in the South where ten years prior she'd left an abusive husband, Clint Windsor (Aidan Quinn), and their two daughters, DeDe (April Mullen) and Amanda (Vanessa Zima) to run off with Randall Pritchard (Kevin Bacon), a rock star. Along with her emotional baggage Delia brings her other daughter from L.A., Cissy Pritchard (Regan Arnold), who spends her adolescent energy brooding about her dead dad and blaming Delia for everything. She has put her father on quite a pedestal--one that he deserves about as much as the blame she has placed on her mother. Regan Arnold played her role very well, and looked like she could very well have been the progeny of Randall and Delia--or Bacon and Sedgwick (since they are married in real life). Regan isn't, apparently--but she has that ring of authenticity. For someone with the names of not one but two actors who went on to be Republican governors of California she was surprisingly sympathetic.

There are lots of flashbacks in "Cavedweller." Returning to the town Delia grew up in, it seems like every place she goes triggers some memory--mostly of abuse by Clint and the reasons she left. The Texaco Station where Randall's tour bus broke down triggers memories of how she met him and their life on the road. Delia became a back up singer with the band. If you like flashbacks, then "Cavedweller" is your movie.
