No doubt written off by many as nothing more than a 'chick flick', this fascinating tale of the complex love/hate mother/daughter relationship is so beautifully written and performed, that it has to be regarded as a classic.
I watched this film with my eldest son back in 1996. He was 23 at the time, and in the Royal Navy. A true hard-hitting, roughie-toughie, seen-it-all hardnut (or so he thought). The real acting for us came during the scene where Teddy (Huckleberry Fox) visits his mother in hospital. Just as the tears rolled down young Huckleberry's face, so they were running down mine. My big, strong, you-can't-touch-me son, meanwhile, was busy clearing the lump in his throat and struggling very hard not to let me see his own tears.
That's when you know you're watching a very special piece of magic.
