  • Summary: It's been 40 years since E.F. Bloodworth abandoned his loving wife and sons for a life on the road. Now at the end of the line, Bloodworth reappears, forced to reckon with the stale aftermath of his departure. With his ex-wife Julia mentally destroyed, his three sons; Warren, Boyd and Brady soured by years of anger, Bloodworth's only solace is a budding relationship with Fleming, the grandson he never knew. But when Fleming meets Raven, the woman of his dreams, will Bloodworth's presence force history to repeat itself? (Samuel Goldwyn Films) Collapse

    The story isn't particularly organized. It's more a collection of scenes - than a coherent coming-of-age tale.

    Bloodworth is a true southern gothic. There is nary a smile nor chuckle to be had throughout and ultimately things end badly. The density of the drama will draw some audiences and repel others, and those who come may find it all a bit too dramatic for plausibility.

    As members of that clan, Kris Kristofferson, Val Kilmer and Dwight Yoakam are compelling in beautifully lived-in, vanity-free performances, but the drama's escalating dread fizzles in a farcical pileup of disaster.

    I liked the movie, I found the story good, but poorly utilized, unfortunately. I expected more emphasis on Kris Kristofferson performance, only that it happened and was disappointed a little. Hilary has really grown up as an actress, despite having only a few scenes. But the few that she is, is working well. You can see more of that in the extras (deleted scenes) to give a better idea. Very good for those who don't like sugar water, a great family portrait dismantled. Who wants to see a happy movie better get away from this. Expand
