The wonderful Shirley Knight deserves far, far better than this "hey kids, let's put on a show" home movie. Tom Skerritt is also poorly served. The "acting" from the rest of the cast -- along with the writing, directing, camera work, even sound -- is woefully, painfully bush league. I saw this at a preview screening in Oregon, and couldn't wait to bolt out of there as soon as it was over.

As I was going to see this movie, I was a bit apprehensive as to if I would be wasting my money on this not so popular indie film. Seeing that the talented Shirley Knight was in it, I decided to go, and boy was I happy I did. The movie was compelling and gave you that feel good sentiment, that not many movies will give you lately. The story line was one that is for older folks, but any age would really enjoy it. I love the new movement of ageless cinema, giving all generations a movie to reach out and relate to. The acting and cinematography was at times a bit shaky, but at the same time was impressive as they were portraying very intellect roles. I really hope that this movie becomes popular worldwide, and gets the credit it deserves. Props to Twyman and Lundgren for making a script that would speak to audiences. The only thing I would change about this movie is maybe tying up loose ends at the ending scene, it seemed a bit too quickly wrapped up. But overall I LOVED IT! Go see it!

How wonderful to see a strong, feisty, independent woman in a leading role! Shirley Knight's portrayal of Marie is warm, moving, and unforgettable. Take your Mom to see this movie.
