To me, the greatest thing about this film is that theme, that lesson, that when someone has mental illness, the best treatment you can give them is to surround them with caring people who will stick by them through thick and thin.

But eventually the family proves strong enough to withstand whatever comes, although the ending of the film is open to interpretation and leaves Curtis's character unresolved as to whether he truly is insane, a prophet or someone in between.
Every scene he is in is memorable and there may be no scene more powerful this decade than his Lions Club scene shouting there is a storm coming.
