Was this film sponsored by the wine industry
21 March 2018 | by reby-08058See all my reviews

Having read all of Joan Anderson's books I was excited to finally get the opportunity to see the movie, I knew not to get my hopes up as often times novels don't relate well on film, but this was worse than I expected. The books contain deep meaningful conversations with Joan Erickson, a fascinating woman with deep psychological insight and together the two Joan's talk about life, being a woman. being authentic and what its like to grow older and look back on all our experiences. And when not with Joan Erickson the other Joan connects with herself on a deeper level against the beautiful backdrop of solitude. But this film had Joan Erickson flittering around like a bad rendition of a new age hippy, the other Joan awkwardly joining in when she wasn't drinking copious glasses of wine, labels of wine bottles facing the camera. Gone was the quiet reflection of the books instead it turned into a community soap opera while Joan and her husband dressed and acted purely as cliche' man vs woman. There was no depth between the story and characters and no showing of a journey of growth. Forget the movie, read the books and find meaningful insight.
