Hello. I believe this movie was from late 80s/early 90s.
2 sisters (teenagers) go to live with an aunt, i believe after the death of their parents. The aunt is maybe a little crazy or a hoarder but pleasant. I maybe remember old newspapers strewn about all over the house. The sisters also start missing school and the principal or similar comes over to talk to the aunt about it.
I don’t remember much more. It has a melancholy tone and rains most of the time. Maybe set in the northwest or northeast US. Small town feel. There are also traintracks that they walk along.
I can’t rember who plays the aunt but maybe someone like Diane Wiest…
Thanks for any help.
