Description

Inventing the Abbotts on DVD

A showcase for bright young stars, Inventing the Abbotts aspires to be the kind of 1950s melodrama-like Splendor in the Grass-that was perfected by directors like Elia Kazan and Douglas Sirk. Calling on the strength of his earlier Circle of Friends, Irish director Pat O'Connor brings many of that film's admirable qualities to this similar ensemble piece (set in late-'50s Illinois), but it's held together by looser and weaker threads. And yet this tale of class division and forbidden love is sensitively written and beautifully filmed, highlighted by two young lovers at the center of an interfamilial conflict.
