The Ponder Heart Reviews:

A pretty movie full of the richness and complexity of Southern life in the 1930s (?).The characters were beautifully portrayed and expressed the times, the concerns, desires, and needs of the Ponder family. Peter MacNichol was entirely believable as the beloved uncle whose only fault was his generosity. Angela Bettis clinched the innocent, pouting, yet headstrong Bonnie Dee. And JoBeth Williams did her greatest to keep the family together, while being cautiously aware of how life for the ponders seemed to be slipping away.If you like the writing of Eudora Welty, you will love this film.


A bit boring at times, and whoever it was who played Uncle Danny's wife annoyed the heck out of me. But then, I suppose that was her job. When it started out, I I just wanted to go to sleep. But by the time it ended, I found my self thinking, "what a sweet tiny film". But, man, I gotta say, I was relieved when that girl died.


I was expecting other well-acted, though sluggish Masterpiece Theater drama, but was pleasantly surprised to search an engaging and well-paced comedy. I often laughed out loud-something I almost never do watching television. Ms. Coolidge presents an exceptional adaptation of Eudora Welty's novel, as do the cast. Peter MacNicol gives nice comic touches to the hero of the lovably eccentric Uncle Daniel. Angela Bettis in the role of the childish southern lower-class woman with uncanny precision. This is the sort of storyline that would have made nice Capra-Stewart film, but this ver is sure worth a look. If you enjoyed `Oh Brother Where Art Thou', you'll probably like this witty view of 1930's southern life as well.
