For a fan of dark science fiction and things that go BANG ! this film is one of my few choices that I really rate that, one might claim, strays into the realm of “chick-filcks”. Her indoors often accuses me of nodding off in the bits where people must “relate” or get all kissy-kissy - especially if that excessively soppy stuff is being dragged out when they ought to be busy escaping from imminent catastrophe, but “Housekeeping” isn’t like that, despite being a virtually all female cast; it’s about a free spirit, unencumbered by the conditioning of convention but, at the same time, trying to make a little bit of effort to compromise to what she sees as the expectations of a conservative community - that is, just up to the point where it just ain’t worth it, and then...
It’s a film that’s a bit special and a bit different and succeeds in leaving me smiling all over.
Christine Lahti is brilliant in this and well supported by a more than able cast.
Bill Forsyth (Gregory’s Girl; Local Hero; Comfort & Joy) makes an exception to his preference for not normally straying out of his native Scotland for this one and a well worthwhile excursion it turns out to be.
I heartily recommend this film. And if anyone knows where I could get hold of it please let me know!

Finally got to see the film of Marilynne Robinson's wonderful book. It lived up to expectations ...Published 19 months ago by Sarah Anderson
I adore this film. A hymn to unorthodoxy and a judgement on those who cannot live with it.
Bill Forsyth is as much a genius film-maker, as Marilynne Robinson is a writer.
