A beautiful film
2 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this film tonight on the euro channel. It is thoroughly enjoyable. The story is touching. All of the actors are wonderful in their roles, especially Jean Simmons.

The cinematography of the English countryside is lovely. As an earlier reviewer said, you'll feel like you're in Norfolk. As a bonus, I'm now a lot more familiar with the poetry of W.B. Yeats.

Many viewers will connect with the central theme of the heartbreak of watching the decline of an aging parent. I give the screenwriter great credit for the way the subject is handled here. Watching this intelligent drama was a very pleasant experience. I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
