User Reviews

complete mush with a real message
12 December 2004 | by susanxxSee all my reviews

Great acting by the two leads makes this film a believable tale of what real friendship is all about. Despite living many miles apart and in different social circles, their friendship endures lifes ups and downs, their husbands deaths and even their harsh words with one another. Rowlands seems to begrudge her friend (Lavin), the 'perfect' life she has had, as now her husband has died she must face the fact that he had an affair, her daughter hates her, and now there is no money coming in she must amend her lifestyle and downsize. Then she is diagnosed with cancer and she deals with it in her own way. Even with its sombre ending it still has a feelgood factor to it. Make time to watch it.
