Gem
24 May 2003 | by (Cambridge, MA) – See all my reviews

This movie is a gem. Joanne Woodward's acting has subtlety and insight. The story of a woman fearful of life and change is told with great truthfulness and sensitivity. The ending succeeded in being hopeful without surrendering to sentimentality or cliche, and I was deeply moved.
