Reviews
Mine: Very heartfelt drama about a 60's family in the eighties. Great performances all around, but Pheonix is a stand out. A terrible tragedy that he died so you.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Intense, moving story of onetime student radicals who are still on the run from the FBI after seventeen years--now with two kids in tow, whose lives are stifled for the sake of sheer survival. Quiet and believable throughout, with superior performances by all. Written by coexecutive producer Naomi Foner.
