Year by the Sea is a thought provoking movie for both men and women
1 November 2016 | by muatlrSee all my reviews

Year by the Sea is an excellent movie that speaks to the issue life changes present to us as individuals and to our relationships. The music, acting, location, and scenery all tell a story that women and men alike experience as we grow into the realization that the best thing we can do is to discover the gifts we each have. In Joan Anderson's case, her decision to take "time away alone" resulted in strengthening her as an individual and in enriching the lives of both her husband and her. The director succeeded in exposing human emotions from laughter to tears. This is a movie for men and women alike and reminds us that it is never too late to reclaim ourselves.
