HBO miniseries about the lives of several people in a small town. I like the way the movie skipped from when they were young and how what happened to them shaped them into what they are today. Some great old cars in it too!

Wonderful moving portrait of one man's life in a small town. It shows how his past has influenced his life, and how his decisions affect his family and future. It's a real life lesson for us all. Great performances by Ed Harris, Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward. It's 2 discs - about 4 hours long-but I loved every minute of it.

Excellent telefilm about life and people

(4 out of 5 stars)

"not too much to write here . rolled the bones on it after having read the back cover in one of my haunts . paid only $3.99 . worth a fair deal more . others will break it down for you . you'll likely feel this is **** or ***** star miniseries . very good adult television . if you like these people , it's the safe bet you hope it will be ."
