MARVIN'S ROOM: 7

A movie rampant with serious emotions as well as some laughs mixed in. No shortage of good acting, but considering the cast that wasn't surprising. The complex pasts of the main characters mostly unravel and the movie completes with a loose ending. Ladies, have your kleenex ready.
