Fine movie about a mother-daughter relationship with Laura Linney and Gena Rowlands in the leading roles. Both actresses give an excellent performance. The story is nothing special but it's acceptable. We also see Emile Hirsch (the guy from "The Girl Next Door" and "Imaginary Heroes") as the son of Laura Linney. This is one of his first important roles and he gives a nice performance.
This is a movie from the same director as "Fort Apache the Bronx" with Paul Newman and Pam Grier ("Jackie Brown") in the leading roles. "Wild Iris" is of course something completely different but in general it is a good movie, nothing exceptional but it is entertaining and the acting performances are good.
