THE GOOD HOUSE follows Hildy Good (Sigourney Weaver), a wry New England realtor and descendant of the Salem witches, who loves her wine and her secrets. Her compartmentalized life begins to unravel as she rekindles a romance with her old high-school flame, Frank Getchell (Kevin Kline), and becomes dangerously entwined in one person’s reckless behavior. Igniting long-buried emotions and family secrets, Hildy is propelled toward a reckoning with the one person she’s been avoiding for decades: herself.

What a joy! So refreshing to go to the movies and feel moved and inspired and overcome with love. Even a hint of mystique and intrigue complements the story perfectly! Fantastic performance by Sigourney Weaver as always! The woman is a force! Great chemistry with her and Kevin Kline. So many movies now rely entirely too much on specs in film... This movie is pure story , character development and dialogue. Very surprising. Loved seeing some OG actors I grew up again in the theater. I took my mother, and we both loved it!
what a terrible movie with such an awkwardly bad love scene that my 84 year old Mom started laughing.
The trouble with this cinematic Trojan horse is that the superficial blandness dominates the frame. It’s hard to feel the story’s stakes when the images are always indicating no danger ahead.
Thanks to its two leads, The Good House very much succeeds as character study. As narrative, it doesn’t fare anywhere near as well.
The Good House ultimately gets more right than it does wrong, but just barely.
