A sweet endearing film portraying aspects of the human experience that could very well instill in all of us the value and importance of close enduring friendships.
To see seasoned screen stars plying their craft with such passion and devotion is a delight. Cicely Tyson and Louise Fletcher create an intimate relationship with their acerbic wit and loving words of wisdom for each other. After 50 years of being friends they continue to reveal old secrets and share new experiences that bring them even closer. We're drawn into their lives with relish and smiles. Not the kind of humor that Grumpy Old Men evokes but intelligent humor that is rare these days. A sweet endearing film portraying aspects of the human experience that could very well instill in all of us the value and importance of close enduring friendships.
