Storyline

Charleston, South Carolina. The Odoms have lived a life of the traditions of the American south in their longtime, large family beach front home. That tradition is turned upside down when younger daughter, bright high school senior Lucille Odom, arrives home to find a note from her mother, Helen Odom, that note which states that she has left for good. This move has been a long time coming for Helen, although the actual act was somewhat spontaneous based on evidence around the family home. The family patriarch, retired Warren Odom, believes his wife will eventually return. To help with the situation, Warren and Lucille request the return of Warren's eldest daughter/Lucille's older sister, Rae Odom. However, Rae has her own issues as she arrives with her new Yankee husband, Billy McQueen, and news that they got married because she's pregnant, about which she doesn't seem too happy. These goings-on affect impressionable Lucille the most, she who is trying to find her own way in life and ... Written by Huggo

Kathryn Erbe!
21 January 2004 | by jcappy5See all my reviews

`Rich in Love' is one of those unfortunate middling films. If not for Kathryn Erbe, there would be little worth writing about--unless of course one loves to see the south in film. Perhaps an expansion and toughening up of Erbe's role and that of Jill Clayburgh's would make this a much better film. As it is there is too much stereotype in every character, and too much soap to support it. It's the plot's very few dark moments that most awaken the viewer. As does, of course, the very original, likeable and snappy acting of Kathryn Erbe. It is a flaw in the film, I think, that her independent life can be questioned, with effect, by the packaged entities around her. Her conforming to them makes her role less convincing--and takes something away from her superior acting.
