    A daughter tries to make amends,when she attends a birthday for her 80 year old father.I love this film, and applaud Fonda and her father Henry.Hepburn and Coleman add to this marvellous cast.Chelsea and Norman Thayer don't get along that well, and they share a sweet but bitter reunion.Billy Ray plays Chelsea's fiancee, and he adds zing to the relationship.Young Billy(McKeon), finds that his mother just tosses him like a rag in the wind.This beautiful film is awesome, and I love it!
