A rare film that is both ferociously funny and poignantly real, PASSION FISH stars Mary McDonnell and Alfre Woodard as two women brought together by fate and united by an unlikely friendship. McDonnell earned a 1992 Oscar(r) nomination for her brilliant portrayal of a wisecracking soap opera star whoreturns home to rural Louisiana after an auto accident leaves her paralyzed. Her cruel but hilarious humor and hard-drinking drive away a succession of nurses until she meets her match in Chantelle (Woodard). Together, they explore the Louisiana bayou, as well as the murkier waters of men, romance and family. An exhilarating film that carries the viewer on waves of laughter and discovery, PASSIONFISH is the work of art you have to see.
An intelligent and potent drama about taking life's second chances when they come, Passion Fish finds director John Sayles (Matewan, Lone Star) once again providing a strong cast of actors with a smart, literate screenplay to produce an entertaining and thought-provoking film. Mary McDonnell (Dances with Wolves, Grand Canyon) plays a soap-opera actress paralyzed in a car accident, who returns to the small town on the Louisiana bayou where she grew up to hide. But the hiring of a physical therapist with a tortured past (Alfre Woodard), and the sometimes antagonistic bond formed between them, allows the woman to try and rehabilitate herself and seize the opportunities that life still has to offer. With some great tradi\ tional Cajun music and the picturesque bayou as a backdrop, Passion Fish is an engaging yarn not to be missed. --Robert Lane
