It worked for me!
9 March 2015 | by egrabczewskiSee all my reviews

I liked this film. It contains the right balance of pragmatism and romance to make it work for me. I didn't find the plot too predictable and the sentiments expressed by the family were plausible. Kate Nelligan (Kathryn) and Ron Silver (Tom) are good adversaries. I particularly liked the part of Michael (Kevin Patrick Walls) as their son. Being a romantic film then it has an idealized ending - which is probably just as well!

This film is clearly not a comedy - although parts will make you smile if you've ever had a long-term relationship. A case in point is when Kathryn tells Tom that they're at their best when they don't talk. Ever tried reasoning with your partner when you have a really serious problem?
