CGiii Comment

Why is this croc of shit in CGiii?
 
Because...it is a prime example of the Hollywood agenda - profoundly influenced and (mis)guided by WASP politics.
 
All white, all wealthy, all puritanical, accompanied with the denial and prohibition of heterosexual behaviour.
 
With these credentials...homosexuality doesn't stand a chance!
 
But...if can stomach this through to the end - the people in the glass houses do start to stop throwing those stones...is this called paving the way to liberalism?

Or...is it a reality check?

Still, it's a despicable film.

The(ir) Blurb...

The Hunter family has long owned a mansion on Pine Island, a summer resort located off the Maine coast. Bart Hunter's now deceased father was able to open the mansion for free when Bart was younger, but current owner Bart, a drunkard and weak man, must now live there year round for financial survival with his wife Sylvia and their late teen-aged son Johnny, the family who are barely able to eke out a living with the mansion now as a year-round inn which is in an extreme state of disrepair. Bart and Sylvia are in a quietly unhappy marriage due largely to Bart's drinking. The Buffalo-based Jorgensons - husband Ken Jorgenson, his wife Helen Jorgenson and their late teen-aged daughter Molly Jorgenson - have rented rooms at the inn for the summer, while Ken looks for a summer house on the island. Ken lived on the island twenty years ago, he actually a working class lifeguard for Bart's father at that time. Ken is now a self-made millionaire as a research scientist, who had never been back.
