Review by Herman Raucher (posted on 5-Nov-2008)

This movie is incredible. The writing is superlative (Herman Raucher also wrote Summer of '42 and Ode to Billy Joe). It tells the story of a dying woman who desperately wants to be remembered. She attempts to achieve this through unconventional means. This movie is my favorite by Raucher.
