She's still got it!
12 December 2000 | by (Duncan, British Columbia) – See all my reviews

At 85 years of age in this film, Katharine Hepburn does a wonderful job. It is inspiring and amazing to see her perform again, and so well. The entire cast was equally as good. The film is certainly more drama than comedy and against what Leonard Maltin said is definately not "light-weight" It is a poignant film with a sense of humour brushed over it, but certainly not a focal point. Hepburn can shine in any film, and this one was certainly true to this statement. The role of was well-suited to her and she and the rest of the cast did a wonderful job. And to think, it was filmed so close to my home!
