Storyline

Lil (Naomi Watts) and Roz (Robin Wright) are two lifelong friends, having grown up together as neighbors in an idyllic beach town. As adults, their sons have developed a friendship as strong as that which binds their mothers. One summer, all four are confronted by simmering emotions that have been mounting between them, and each find unexpected happiness in relationships that cross the bounds of convention.

might be perceive as provocative but...
9 October 2013 | by (france) – See all my reviews

I've not yet read the short story so i will not compare.

But i do not understand all the bad critics left by some of the users (but i do respect them). Some are blaming the acting, others the story, the dialogs... But the most important here lays on the film itself and its photography: look at the space occupied by the different characters because from clear barriers it get twisted imperceptibly all along the movie.

The subject of the movie is not young adults who can't face the reality of an outside world or some older women not able to deal with their age (close-ups are still great and really narrative by themselves), it's also not about decorums and society, because it can happen and fate or destiny have nothing to do with it; it's just about a part of a life story, not ordinary but quite unstoppable.

There is more than a parallel to make with Brockeback Mountain with the movie, the characters, the story line, the making, the sound... And it didn't seem to bother years ago...

We do not have to relate to appreciate, enjoy this slice of life that tells everything with its title "Alone" or even "Perfect mothers" and "the grand mothers"...
