| A friendless, possibly schizophrenic, bag lady is befriended by a wealthy Seattle socialite
This made-for-TV film is still quite moving 14 years later; Gena Rowlands, for me, is always an actress worth watching; her understated style can speak volumes without her saying a word (those eyes: that pinched smile!); Tyne Daly's work is never excessive either; this bag lady often speaks the truth with great wisdom, learned out in the real world. When Rowlands has to go there, her wealthy "friends" are no help at all; finally, near the film's conclusion Rowland's daughter Tina (the very under-rated Cynthia Nixon) begins to see the importance of her mother's compassion and empathy for others less fortunate. Those "Ronald Reagan Rejects" are still out there, aren't they?
