Unusually touching and highly entertaining film
4 August 2012 | by khnumber8See all my reviews

I can't say enough good things about this movie. Others have outlined the basic plot, so I will simply say that the chemistry between stodgy, solitary, uptight Joanne Woodward, and boisterous, earthy, extroverted Brian Dennehey is absolutely unforgettable, and both of these great actors play their roles to the hilt... really wonderful performances. The script is very intelligent, and the subplot between a young English professor and a somewhat older English actress is also quite dramatic and and an interesting counterpoint to the Dennehey/Woodword romance. Like others who have posted on this board, I too frequently watch this film. I never tire of it and have seen it probably 15 times or so (haven't seen it in many months now, so I feel I'm ready for another "fix"). The movie creates such a strong story and strong atmosphere, that it's like you are re-visiting friends and going on a vacation yourself to a very beautiful and peaceful place (England) while watching this wonderful film. I was lucky to have recorded the film when I first saw it. They don't show it on TV any more (alas !!) so if the video is available, I STRONGLY recommend buying it. ENJOY !!
