Housekeeping is my first Bill Forsyth affair and what a wonderful affair it was. Housekeeping tells the story of two young girls in rural 1950's America who bounce around from guardian to guardian in the wake of their mothers suicide. Housekeeping is much more dry than I was expecting. While the performances were a little more dramatic than they should have been I fell in love with the characters and their conflicts anyway. The setting and locations are phenomenally used in the film.
