A Forgotten Gem

I pretty much ignored this film when it was first released. I watched on it's first airing on TV, & I literally couldn't believe at how good it was. So I went out & rented it, & yep, I was right. It's that good.
The story is just perfect from beginning to end. And Kathy Bates, IMO, turns in an even better performance than she did in Misery. The plot may tend to come off as a bit complicated... read more

To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and a re-watch might change my opinion about the whole thing. On top of that, I have never been a huge fan of Stephen King’s book adaptations but, at least, the ones with a realistic angle were always better in my opinion (with the notable exception of ‘The Shining’). Anyway, I have to admit it, it was actually a decent thriller ... read more

Description: A daughter who has come to imagine the worst about her mother learns the facts are quite different -- and more shocking than she ever imagined -- in this adaptation of Stephen King's best-selling novel.

"First viewing - Mar. 13th Back when Dolores Claiborne was released I had zero interest in seeing it. But it's maintained a decent reputation over the years, so when it popped up on Max this month I figured I'd finally give it a chance. And I'm glad I did. It's solidly entertaining despite the dark subject matter. Bates and Leigh give outstanding performances, and most of the rest of the cast is solid. John C. Reilly seems to struggle with his accent, but that was the only issue I really noticed"
