Storyline

Four estranged sisters reunite after their mother's alleged suicide. Mary Baxter (Weaver and Smart, at different ages) led an enviable life, traveling the world as a young dancer.She was blessed with four daughters from four different fathers, each as unique as the cities they are named after: Carolina (Katic), Austin (Weixler), Dallas (Trachtenberg) and Baltimore (Bellisario). After Mary's death, her daughters reunite in their New England family home to mourn. As the local police investigate the circumstances of Mary's death, old animosities among the sisters resurface, and a dark secret threatens to tear the family apart. Faced with a horrifying truth, the estranged sisters must choose to either turn their backs on the only family they have known, or risk everything to protect one another. Written by AnonymousB

Quotes

Mary Baxter: What I miss most of all is the sex. Young people don't think about senior citizens having sex, but we do, and we like it. We like it a lot. It's just a bit slower then we were your age.

Genuinely Moving
19 September 2016 | by Lynne-46See all my reviews

I was familiar with the brilliant play that inspired the film and was blown away with the adaptation. Four sisters grappling with the personal disappointments, their fraught relationship with their mother and each other, and with their mother's death. The actors are riveting, the entire experience gripping. Set on a lake, the story unfolds in a kind of "No Exit," environment, where the sisters are forced to remain as the uncomfortable hours click by, forced to face issues none wishes to face. The addition of more back story and appearance of some men in the women's lives adds wonderful dimension as well, each one played pitch perfect for their role. Fun bonus to see the stunning beauty that Cindy Crawford's daughter has grown to be, especially since she demonstrated wonderful acting chops. Another actor to watch, along with the rest of the superb and relatively new to seasoned cast. Highly recommend.
