DIGGING TO CHINA (Theatrical Release USA 1998)

 Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì 

Digging to China—simple story—can be a depressing watch due to long-term life choices of a mother and her daughter that impact the youngest girl’s ability to deal with reality. Evan Rachel Wood shows youthful acting talent as she interprets the running away from her life role. Kevin Bacon has some difficulty holding a continuous physical enactment of his role with complete consistency and continuity.  The movie cannot begin to compete with movies like Rain Man, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest or Awakenings.
