Reviews
Mine: Bittersweet movie. Sandy and dusty in tone and apperiance.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Perceptive, exquisitely realized memoir, set in 1951 Nevada--the dawn of the Atomic Age. Heroine is 13-year-old Gish, whose mother (Williams) only sees what she wants to and whose stepfather (solidly acted by Voight) is an embittered, alcoholic WW2 hero reduced to running a gas station. Corr wrote the poignantly precise script from a story by Linda Remy and himself.
