Storyline

Lil (Naomi Watts) and Roz (Robin Wright) are two lifelong friends, having grown up together as neighbors in an idyllic beach town. As adults, their sons have developed a friendship as strong as that which binds their mothers. One summer, all four are confronted by simmering emotions that have been mounting between them, and each find unexpected happiness in relationships that cross the bounds of convention.

It's alright
4 May 2018 | by erikanooxSee all my reviews

The scenery in the film was beautiful. However, there were some cringe worthy lines and scenes, the development of the plot was not very smooth...at times very cliche, and I did not exactly understand the ending - at one point, I even wondered if they could possibly be dead because they looked quite lifeless. Nonetheless, it was a pretty scene, good enough to make it to the cover of the film. I also agree with other reviewers that there was an absence of character development. I think my main motivation for finishing the movie was the beautiful actresses and actors plus the magnificent scenery. Don't think I would watch it again, but that's just me!
