TOUCHING,REMARKABLE,OUTSTANDING,GREAT PERFORMANCES.......
4 April 1999 | by Alfonso-2See all my reviews

This film chronicles the relationship between Mildred and Doris two older women falling in love with each other and coping with years of ingrained behavior but finding the strength to let go of their old habits in order to form a loving relationship. This film also touches on the harsh realities of breast cancer as the director herself painfully demonstrates but the film is joyous a celebration of love and life that it should not be missed. Make no mistake this is a film filled with touching and real performances but also the joy of falling in love all over again. A MUST SEE FILM FOR EVERYONE,ESPECIALLY WOMEN!!!!!!!!!!!!
