Great Late Kate
13 May 2004 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

This made-for-CBS film is a tailor-made TV vehicle for the great Kate. Her chemistry with Harold Gould is warm in a prickly way -- perfect for both leads. Denholm Elliott lends marvelous supporting work -- as per usual -- moving things along nicely. The normally feckless Charles Frank is surprisingly compelling as the lone child more interested in Kate's happiness than improving his own financial situation. The rest of the professional cast, led by Kathryn Walker and David Ogden Stiers, snipe and snicker capably enough but add nothing particularly new to the proceedings.

But, the opportunity to see Katherine Hepburn in one of her final leading performances as a spunky octogenarian who still considers herself worthy of love is the main reason to watch this audience-pleaser.
