Runs like a real Broadway production. Great actors at an early stage.

"I cannot say enough good things about LEMON SKY. It will change all preconceived ideas you may have about Kevin Bacon. It is quite simply his best work. But he's also given a beautiful script and equally up to the task ensemble. (Where have you been Lindsay Crouse?!?!?!?)
I recently showed it to my students for playwriting and they were blown away. Tears were streaming after. It takes a seemingly simple story of a father/son relationship gone sour and lifts it to poetic heights. Yes, it's that good."

"First film for Kevin Bacon & Kyra Sedgewick (that's where they met). Lemon Sky is a theatrical play filmed for TV-for American Playhouse on PBS. Director Jan Egleson made his career out of filming plays for TV. Unfortunately PBS lost funding for American Playhouse so we no longer can enjoy these productions at home. This is a pity because there are many good plays that people never get to enjoy. We are lucky to be able to see Lemon Sky whenever we'd like. It's a good story that alot of people can relate to. Its about a young man trying to deal with his father who left him when he was young."
