5 stars

A movie that shows you not to judge Sissy Spacek by her performance in Carrie.

Sissy is good as always, Mel over earnest.

It's been a long time since I have seen this movie but it was pretty good! If you like Mel Gibson and you haven't seen it yet, you should. Mel in his younger days. *sighs* ;-)
