Discussion after the film with Janet Maslin, film and literary critic for the New York Times, Rev. Dr. Mary Foulke, from Robert Castles St. Marys Episcopal Church, and producer Ed Saxon.
"A home movie of sorts, in which the social involvement of Cousin Bobby is set against a backdrop of faded photographs, old family memories and reunions, and the wonderment we all feel when we meet someone we were friends with long ago, and see what has become of them." Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
