Young big-city journalist Fredericka Rose is assigned to do a "puff piece" on Bob Ryan on the eve of his 100th birthday. Fredericka goes through the motions, but Ryan gradually gets to her, and changes the way she thinks about her life.
Helen has it all: friends, an attentive second husband, a cheerful teen daughter, musical talent, and a university teaching job. Then, something's amiss: is her husband cheating, does she have a fatal disease, does her past haunt her? There's a quick hospitalization, a disclosure, a bond with one of her students, Mathilde, and a dark chasm that seems to be opening in front of her: can Helen do anything about the problem she won't discuss, or will it swallow her?

I saw this film yesterday evening on TV and I must say it is very beautiful and painful at the same time. You must be in the mood for this kind of film. Acting is excellent by all of the actors, but Ashley is simply brilliant she could easily be nominated for Oscar. It is not an everyday story and topic is very hard and demanding, but directing and the tempo of the film is perfect, so you can easily follow the story and feel the pain of all the participants in the story. Goran Visnjic and Lauren Lee Smith both gave one of there best performances by my standards. I recommend this film to all the real movie fans who can appreciate the story and acting without a bunch of special effects.
