Seasons of the Heart (1994)
Reviewed By Jason S. Lockard
Carol Burnett is probably best known for "The Carol Burnett Show" a sketch comedy/variety show. But what many people may not realize is that as good of a comedian as she was, she was just as good of a dramatic actor.
One such dramatic presentation was the 1994 made for TV drama Seasons of the heart. Now the fine folks at Mill Creek Entertainment now brings us this Carol Burnett gem on DVD.
This made for TV movie follows Vivian Levinson (Burnett), who seems to have it all. A loving husband, a nice home and a successful publishing career. Life is good. That is until her drug-addicted daughter Ellen abandons her son David and he arrives on Vivian's doorstep. This sets the whole family onto a collision course. What will happen? You have to check out the film to find out.
This movie boasts of an all-star cast, including the great Carol Burnett, George Segal (Just shoot me! TV series), Malcolm McDowell (Star Trek Generations) and Eric Lloyd (Santa Clause 1, 2 and 3). Everyone is excellent in this film. This is a thought provoking and poignant drama. The film does not drag at all it movies very fast and before you know it the film is over!
The DVD includes an outstandingly beautiful copy of the film. It is presented in full screen format, and before anyone has fits, realize that this was before HD TV content. The audio is crisp and clear. The bonus feature is a digital copy that you can watch anywhere you have a internet connection.
