I recently showed it to my students for playwriting and they were blown away. Tears were streaming after. It takes a seemingly simple story of a father/son relationship gone sour and lifts it to poetic heights. Yes, it's that good.
The DVD with its extras offers great insight into the making of this film. "The Making of Lemon Sky" with director Jan Egleson takes you through the creative process from start to finish and lets you in on why the finished product is so captivating and moving.
This is Kevin Bacon at his best. But the entire cast is riveting without exception. If you haven't seen or heard of "Lemon Sky" treat yourself to a unique film experience.
CQ DX correctly states, "Essentially if you set up a camera in the kitchen of a dysfunctional family, and let it run for 96 minutes..." That's precisely how the play is staged.
The Director, Jan Eagleson, expanded on the basic staging with a set designed to allow cameras "on stage" to shoot movie-like closeup shots. Adding a few exterior shots and some unique camera points of view made this a very creative production of this Lanford Wilson play.
I appreciate this production may not have been what you were expecting. Please judge it for what it is - a stage play on a custom designed set, video-taped to air on PBS's American Playhouse - not as a movie.
Just my 2¢

I think it was the most ridiculous movie I ever watched. I threw it in the trash.Published 9 months ago by CARBE
Bacon was outstanding. This is not a movie but a play about a dysfunctional family. I didn't enjoy it as much as his movies.Published 13 months ago by Claire
