Aroview: A satisfying, home-spun Southern patchwork, stuffed with little-biddy-town idiosyncracies and a slightly kooky plot surrounding the mysterious, untimely death of an old widow and the subsequent clues pointing all the wrong ways.
Overbearing spinster Glenn Close leads the ensemble charge of unusual 'suspects' ahead of Liv Tyler, Chris O'Donnell, Julianne Moore, among others, all mustered with the trademark lightness of touch and sly assurance of dir. Robert Altman.
3 stars (Good Enough) Excellent ensemble performances with Liv Tyler standing out. The low key screenplay has some delightful moments and the superb soundtrack is to the fore without getting in the way.~tubbs
