5.0 out of 5 stars Examines relationships, 12 Dec. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Ordinary People [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Robert Redford directed this excellent film which examines the lives of a family thrown into termoil when one of the its members is tragically killed in an accident. This event affects the son who is very obviously tramatised and finds it difficult to return to a normal life. What makes the film both interesting and compeling is that it examines the inter-rationships between the family members and demonstrates in a gripping and realistic way that adversity can expose human weaknesses and frailties. It also explores the idea that relationships are only truely tested in difficult situations. I think anyone watching this film will relate to the superb performances of the actors and empathise with the emotions each of them goes through. Highly recommended and one of my all time best films.
