Rich in Love is a 1993 drama film based on the 1987 novel with the same name by Josephine Humphreys. The film stars Albert Finney, Katherine Erbe, Kyle MacLachlan, Jill Clayburgh, Suzy Amis, and Ethan Hawke.



The movie takes place in Charleston, South Carolina, where the Odom family lives in a large, white, Southern house. The movie is about teenager Lucille Odom (Erbe) who is in her last year of high school when mother, Helen Odom (Clayburgh), leaves the family, breaking all ties, and with Lucille being left in the care of her father, Warren Odom (Finney). The family then spends the summer trying to get their lives together, which is complicated when the older daughter of the family, Rae (Amis), moves back home with a husband (MacLachlan) and a new baby on the way, about whom Rae has mixed feelings.



The film received mostly positive reviews.[1] One drawback, however, was that many did not find the story believable, as the family's problems and happy ending were something of a fantasy. For example, Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times, giving the film three stars out of four, wrote "I must confess I didn't much believe the story".[2]
