Jean Simmons's graceful exit
29 September 2015 | by jjnxn-1See all my reviews

Meditative family drama about healing old wounds as the family's matriarch is approaching her sunset. Jean Simmons, terribly feeble-she passed away less than a year after the film's release, gives a gentle but resolute performance. Nice that she could make her final bow above the title of a film that while it's not a masterpiece is a respectable showcase for her great often under-appreciated talent.

Made before his breakthrough this has Jamie Dornan as a young drifter who has been a companion to Jean before the arrival of her son and grandchildren. He's okay but the script fumbles his part and after a solid start his role loses focus and drops off into meaninglessness.

Not a great film, though it does have some beautiful settings, but if you're a fan of Miss Simmons worth catching for her lovely last performance.
