A distrubing and often tragic look at the Amercian family. Dennis Hopper plays a father who has been in prison for five years. On his return his distructive and abusive ways are brought back to haunt is wife and teenage daughter CeeBee. While he was absent CeeBee has become the carer of the home but also a deliqant. The fathers return is what many belive will be turning point for CeeBee. However what they don't know is between CeeBee and her father lies a guilty past. Hoppers performance and direction are incredable. The film is very low budget but the style and bravery of the peice make up for its flaws. Also contains a great soundtrack.
