Review by Barbie Snitzer
I believe I’ve previously declared that it is always my intention to approach every movie with a blank slate, absent preconceptions and prejudice. I am however, only human, so I do sometimes occasionally fall short of my ideal.
I admit to such a lapse as I began to watch Still Mine. The bucolic scenery, the languorous pace, and the obvious hints of Irene’s (Genviève Bujold) descent towards dementia that indicated such would be the movie’s story, coaxed my cinematic cynic. Having recently endured Unfinished Song (read my review of that Here) I can hardly be faulted.

Check out the trailer, photos and poster for Michael McGowan's Still Mine, starring James Cromwell, Genevieve Bujold, Campbell Scott, Rick Roberts, Julie Stewart, Jonathan Potts, George R.

In his first lead role after decades of playing supporting characters, Cromwell gives a tour de force performance in Still Mine, an exquisitely crafted and deeply affecting love story about a couple in their twilight years. Based on true events and laced with wry humor, Still Mine tells the heartfelt tale of Craig Morrison (Cromwell), who comes up against the system when he sets out to build a more suitable house for his ailing wife Irene (Bujold).
