Sissy Spacek has never looked more beautiful than in this WW2 drama directed by her husband,art director Jack Fisk,and the chemistry between her and Eric Roberts works well,but this film has two major flaws to it that ultimately prove to be its downfall.The first is that once Eric Roberts leaves for the war,Miss Spacek very shortly thereafter gives one of her standard "I am woman,watch me roar" Declarations of Independence,which in this case is nothing more than a time filler.The second is that about 10 minutes into the film,you know exactly how its going to end,and the film doesn't disappoint,although the identity of the Raggedy Man is a bit of a suprise.The film is still worth seeing,though,for the scenes between the two leads,the beautiful cinematography,and the attention to detail.
