"Did you ever have the feeling you turned into the wrong person?" Rebecca (Blythe Danner) asks her placid brother-in-law Zeb (Peter Riegert). A widow since age 26, the 50-something Rebecca has been wondering lately how her life got taken up with running her late husband's party-planning business and looking after his large extended family, including his 99-year-old uncle (Jack Palance).
Engaging if not terribly significant, this Hallmark Hall of Fame adaptation of Anne Tyler's novel shows how one person can touch many-even if they don't fully appreciate her. Danner shines at the film's center, and Peter Fonda is fine as her straitlaced old boyfriend.
