A very sweet rendition of Capote's novel, directed by Walter Matthau's son. It seems to be reaching for the Kleenex effect, and it does have its moments, but unfortunately it's somewhat diluted and ineffectual. Nevertheless, its saccharine "Hallmark Channel" approach is not a bad thing, just nothing extraordinary. (Walter) Matthau shines. Laurie presents a touching representation of 'Dolly', a meek and delicate flower who finally comes of age, per se. Spacek nails the pinched-faced spinster role. Interesting role reversal for those two, being that 20 years earlier Sissy was the timid "Carrie" and Piper was her domineering mother. Lemmon -- everybody showed up for work. There just wasn't much on their agenda.

I enjoyed this film! It has a great cast and it's one of the last few films with Walter Matthau. It's funny and touching.
