What some people think about this movie...
A very sweet poignant story of a group of elderly women trapped in the hills of Canada for
several nights. Dorector Cynthia Scott told the "actresses" the basic storyline & then let them ad
lib their way through. It is a story about real women who share their actual life stories with each
other & with the audience, including photos. There is a nun, a Navajo grandmother, a former British
flapper, a Naturalist Lesbian, an English stroke survivor, a high-strung frail Lady, their younger
female bus-driver & an introspective woman who's fear that she may be dying necessitates the detour
to find her old childhood home in the woods where they all become lost. Slow-paced but marvelously
so, this film blooms like a precious flower as the women become closer & share of themselves. My
HIGHEST recommendation! You'll never be the same again after watching the grace & courage of these
A quick correction, if I may. Alice is of Mohawk decent & not Navajo as I stated
I think this will be the only time I won't agree with
on movie review (she is a wonderful critic).
This movie is very slow,you have to be very patient or be in the mood
to see something with a theme "We'll all be old one day."
