Sweet Movie
21 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this movie. My mother and I were fortunate enough to be extras in this movie. You can see me really good 3 time and my mother too (airport)! I was able to meet Gena Rowlands and Linda Lavin, both were very sweet and kind ladies. The movie was such a joy to watch. It makes you long for that life long friendship that they had. Best Friends for Life, I think is what most people want. The movie showed other friendships as well. How each lady's life was influenced by others and how they had each other involved. It also reminded me of the country mouse and the city mouse. Ms. Rowlands played a well to do lady and Ms. Lavin, well to do, but down to earth. They are able to become apart of each others life. Ms. Lavin, showed what it is to be a true friend. Her Character was so kind and understanding, even when being accused of not being as such. Both ladies made their characters believable and put you right where they were. I really enjoy this movie, not because I was able to be apart of it but because it was well preformed by so many great artists!!!
