Movie genre that should make a comeback

Loved it. Everytime, I thought It would take an obvious turn, it didn't. It was funny, touching, fresh and watching the chemistry of Sigourney Weaver and Kevin Kline was off the charts. The acting, direction, production values were excellent. Movies of this genre have been rare in recent years . It was refreshing. It's a must see! The small town setting felt so authentic to New England, though shot in Nova Scotia.

I found myself holding my breath in so many scenes. All of the characters felt very real and if you've ever dealt with an alcoholic, many things might hit home. There are two adorable dogs in it too!

Not just a love story

Kevin Kline and Sigourney Weaver along with an excellent supporting cast give strong performances. The parts are played with a refreshing low key style making the characters believable and relatable.

The story and script do a fine job of depicting the many challenges faced by an older divorced business woman with adult children in a small town with ever judging eyes. The main character's romantic, personal, family and professional lives are evenly balanced throughout the film. All the while the subtext of her personal struggles with alcohol and how they affect all of her afore mentioned relationships is well woven into the story.

The story is lightly peppered with a few well placed comic relief moments and the cinematic vehicle of the "aside" is used well and not overdone.

So nice to see a movie based on believable people and real life situations. We need more movies like this.

There should be more movies like this.

Sigourney Weaver Is so talented and just outstanding in this role. The always great Kevin Kline, is full of patience and genuine understanding. Some familiar faces make up the cast of characters, who fill the movie with a few "ah ha" moments. Good to see Beverly D'angelo in a small supporting role. There is a lot of beautiful scenery that adds so much to this movie. Lost loves, childhood trauma, suicide, alcohol addiction, some of life's really hard lessons portrayed in a moving and realistic adult fashion. Some really funny moments and true romance to go along with it. We were pleasantly surprised how much we enjoyed this movie. We will watch it again.
