Laura Dern is so wonderful in this. Plays like a singular, beautiful, erotic, painful reminiscence. The last scene, where an elderly Robert Duvall comforts his shocked, grieving son (played by John Heard) is one of the sweetest most plaintive endings I have ever witnessed on film. Martha Coolidge takes what could have played as tawdry and salacious and turns it into poetic and tender bittersweet dreams. "Rose lives!"
