Lasse Hallstrom is one of my all-time favorite directors and this was one of his I hadn't seen. It's an odd little film with a stellar cast, but doesn't quite hold up to his later (and earlier) wonderful films. It does have its moments, though, including a lovely speech by Holly Hunter's character where she states definitively that this is her "adventure" and that, finally, her family's opinions about her life weren't as important as her own feelings. But overall, I felt like something was just a little off with this one. By the end, I had warmed to it a bit, though, and started to feel for the characters and their difficult relationships deeply enough.
