Original Title:

Crazy in Love

Holly Hunter here takes part in a made-for-cable woman-athon, directed by one of Hollywood’s best-known female directors, Martha Coolidge. She is joined by an extended family of top-rate actresses (Gena Rowlands, Herta Ware, Frances McDormand), three generations of the same family who live together on an island off Washington State, where they spend their time moaning about how rotten men are, hugging each other, greeting tragedy with a poignant smile and generally overdoing the perky-cute mannerisms. The men (Bill Pullman, Julian Sands) are as feckless as you'd expect and, despite death, senility and conflagration, everyone remains determinedly luvvy throughout

Despite a top cast and leading director, the film is just little too sweet.
