Aʙᴏᴜᴛ ᴛʜᴇ Mᴏᴠɪᴇ
In 1967, two sisters, Juliet (Darby Camp) and Evangeline (Chandler Head) are abandoned and raised by grandparents Walt (Corbin Bersen) and Ruby (Melissa Gilbert) in the town of Fireside. Walt’s eccentric mother Itasca (Cloris Leachman) adds laughter and tears. Humor, heartbreak and triumph are served with whipped cream and lots of local nuts in this tale of family, friendship and forgiveness.
Oh my. I’m feeling all the feels. I laughed, sighed, gasped, and cried (a lot) during the last hour and forty-seven minutes. When We Last Spoke overflows with love, family, friends, and the sweet spirit of forgiveness.
I enjoyed every single character in this meaningful film. The unconventional family dynamic of Walt (Popo) Ruby (Mamaw) Juliet (Rabbit) and Evangeline (Squirrel) warmed my heart.
It was fun being transported back to the music and atmosphere of the late 60s, and the southern culture and the stability of the North Star gave this story added depth and charm. I loved the actors, the acting, the humor, and the touching moments. I loved Cloris Leachman’s humorous and tender moments, Corbin Bernsen as an older, gentle soul, and Melissa Gilbert as the endearing family matriarch. But I especially enjoyed Darby Camp and Chandler Head (the young girls.) They are remarkable and lovable little actors!
This sweet, nostalgic film will make you yearn to hug, call, or drive home to your loved ones.
