Adding my name to that list because it really confused me as a kid/teenager. At that time I thought she was making the transformation from girl to woman and fell in love with her father. He had a night of weakness after drinking then came out of it and slapped her.

I do remember I loved Debbi Morgan in the film especially the mirror scene and her past relationships.






that exactly what I always thought



that's what I thought too.  LOL  age can make a difference when u watch a movie.   I felt so bad for Debbie Morgans character.......her husbands kept dying on her.    The mind is a powerful thing.  If u believe u r cursed then u will be cursed.

Agreed.

This is exactly how I interpreted it, too. When her sister Eve came to Cicely with a secret, she claimed to have witnessed their father cheating on their mother on a woman (who I believe was one of his patients) Cicely seemed very adamant in denying that their father had done anything wrong; that the woman he was with was just there to help him get more drinks in the carriage house. I'm pretty sure she wanted to shield her little sister from the truth but she also looked a bit suspicious, hurt, which led me to believe she had feelings for her father or maybe even wanting to subconsciously deny it for herself as well b/c she does not want to believe that her father would want any other girl but her (yes, disturbing). And when she told Eve what happened that night before she was sent away she made up a lie about her father molesting her when she was the one to come to him when he was drunk and not in his right mind. She put the blame on him. Also, another scenario is when she waits for her father all night to get home. When he finally does she says something like "you're late" and he greets her and says something along the lines of 'your mother would kill me if she knew I let you stay up this late, go to bed' she doesn't just yet and continues to talk to him then all of a sudden Eve enters the room and the disappointment on Cicely's face was questionable. She looked upset that Eve interrupted their time together. She could just be a daughter that wants all the time she can get with her dad, daddy's little girl kinda thing but I don't think so, she seemed jealous, not the sibling kind of jealous either but an intimate unnatural, kind. I believe he was a good father, not the best but he did care for his 2 daughters. I remember seeing how he shoved Eve out of the way as to not get shot before his murder. He was just a man who loved to cheat on his wife and have many women but not a molester I don't think. Anyhow, that's how I had viewed it at the time.

ETA more lol.

But how do you explain her lying about that night she kissed her dad?

They did have quite a strange father-daughter relationship, but I took it as her being a daddy's girl...
