What I really like about this movie is the story of the seduction, most elegantly achieved. Eugenia portrays the image of a vulnerable soul in constant need of protection, which is ever so tempting for men and poor William falls hard and fast. “He was inside the atmosphere, or light, or scent she spread, as a boat is inside the drag of a whirlpool, as a bee is caught in the lasso of perfume from the throat of a flower.”
A lovely film about sibling rivalry and sibling love-- complex and unlike any other love you have for another. Jennifer Jason Leigh is so good, at times you will find it hard to watch her. And who knew Mare Winningham could sing so beautifully? Honest and raw, with a great soundtrack.
