MAYBE I'LL COME HOME... is a well-made TV movie with a superior cast. In it, troubled Sally Field leaves her hippie boyfriend and their commune to return to her miserable suburban middle-class life. 'Dennie' (Field) gives herself a pixie haircut, which upsets her imitative younger sister Susie (Bradbury), a hippie wannabe. Susie's into her parents' pill bottles and is constantly high. Tension, strife and arguing are a main theme among this dysfunctional family. When Dennie's long-haired "old man" (Carradine) steals an ice cream truck and arrives at her family's home, she must decide whether or not to leave with him. Meanwhile, Susie's made plans of her own.

In GINGER..., Sissy Spacek's title character could very well be Susie from the above film, an awkward redhaired teen who leaves home looking for freedom and fun. Thumbing a ride, Ginger is picked up by Monte Markham, a man more than twice her age who's probably very much like the girl's own father: conservative and settled-down, yet Ginger finds him attractive (Freudian, perhaps?). Not much happens here and a decent supporting cast is squandered along the way. Minor roles for Fred Ward (Gus Grissom in 1983's THE RIGHT STUFF) and David Doyle (P.I. Bosley on TV's CHARLIE'S ANGELS).

Parenthetical numbers preceding titles are 1 to 10 imdb viewer poll ratings.

Truly a drippy/suburban tale of the little hippie girl who leaves home, but nonetheless the monolog between parents & child couldn't have hit closer to home. Same words out of my parent's mouths all those years ago & I was just as dumbfounded as Sallie Field by what they said & thought. Funny, but that never changed the rest of our lives...
