Forgotten/Neglected Movies: Rambling Rose
Bill Crider mentioned Calder Willingham a few weeks back, which called to mind first the book and then the movie, RAMBLING ROSE.
Directed by Martha Coolidge in 1991, RAMBLING ROSE tells the story of a wayward girl taken in by a conventional family who try to tame her rambling ways. Every man falls for Rose and she is unable to ignore their advances.
Laura Dern play Rose, Robert Duvall, the conventional father, and Diane Ladd, the mother and Lukas Haas, the son. This movie has the kind of quiet charm and dignity that few movies have today. Doubt it would even get made by an indie company.
This movie deserves a look.
