The Family That Frays Together

But the hum of the town is itself part of the film's polemic. It's a stand-in for the resounding hum of an idealized community. In a confused world, this is a movie with answers. Heartbreak exists for these people in order to force a reconciliation and a redemption. Families are made to be mended. It's all so warm and comforting, like a cup of herbal tea. Have we all become so jaded that this engineered uplift can be touted as the one true thing?

One True Thing.
Directed by Carl Franklin. Screenplay by Karen Croner. Starring Meryl Streep, Renee Zellweger, and William Hurt.
