Rating:
PG
Grass Harp is a drama-comedy directed by Charles Matthau and released in 1995. Based on the memoirs of Truman Capote, Grass Harp tells the story of Colin Fenwick (Edward Furlong), a recently orphaned boy who moves in with his colorful aunts Verena (Sissy Spacek) and Dolly (Piper Laurie). Verena is a domineering, greedy woman who runs roughshod over her quieter and more submissive sister. Colin is wary of the formidable Verena, but quickly grows close to Dolly and the household maid, Catherine (Nell Carter). Soon after Colin moves in, Verena makes the acquaintance of the mysterious and handsome Dr. Morris Ritz (Jack Lemmon). Ritz pressures Verena to obtain the recipe for Dolly's famous tonic, promising huge profits if he is allowed to distribute the product nationally. Dolly has other ideas, however, and absconds to a treehouse with Colin and Catherine in tow. Furious, Verena calls the police and sparks a wild, hilarious manhunt that may land the trio in jail. Their only hope lies in Charlie Cool (Walter Matthau), a retired judge who supports their cause. Grass Harp is a complex film that is simultaneously intense and comical. Fans of Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau will love it.moreless
