Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Released in the US in 1989, Unfinished Business was actually completed in 1985. Directed by Don Owen, the film is a sequel to Owen's 1964 docudrama Nobody Waved Goodbye. In the earlier film, Peter Kastner played a disenfranchised young man who descended into petty thievery, while Julie Biggs co-starred as the woman in his life. Unfinished Business details what has happened to that couple in the intervening twenty years, utilizing the same actors. Now divorced, Kastner and Biggs must deal with their troublesome 17-year-old daughter Isabelle Mejias, who apparently has inherited all the negative traits of both her parents. This Canadian Unfinished Business should not be confused with the like-vintage Australian film of the same name.
