I tried to stick with it, but it was too boring.

This popular Showtime feature could not be better timed for today's society and economy. Two aging ladies learn to rely on each other to navigate the difficulties of living on a fixed income in an ever-more expensive world. The characters are real, the drama believable and the comedy timed just right to keep the film in balance. Terrific, you'll love it!

I first saw this movie on Showtime and thought how well written the story is. The acting was excellent. The "message" of the movie stayed with me long after I saw the movie. I wanted to share it with friends and ordered extra copies to give at Christmas. They also liked the movie quite a lot. I highly recommend this movie.

I thoroughly loved this movie, in fact adored parts of it. This work should have won some major awards... it is funny, sad, poignant and tough at all the right moments. Louise Fletcher and Cicely Tyson gave sterling, award-worthy performances and Lea Delaria is certainly no slouch in the acting department. I'm saddened to see this movie discontinued, there is a real market for it. Catch it when you can. Bravo to the producers and cast for a delicious movie.

This is a must see movie on so many levels. The two lead actresses
(Cicely Tyson and Louise Fletcher) are enormously gifted and sharing
their skills at the height of their craft. The script to wonderfully
tight, drawing the audience to make a strong emotional and intellectual
investment in the story. The cinematography is accessible, providing
images that are familiar but not overly comfortable. As an art form,
this is a tender yet biting tale of character. As a piece of social
education, it should be required viewing for all those who are in the
position of eldercare giver. This movie will have you thinking about
the circumstances and situations long after you viewed it. If not
before the final credit plays, you will be thinking of all those you
wish would also see the film -- to help them understand a most complex
part of the closing of life. Let's hope that this author and producer
has more to share with us in the future.

Moving, funny, smart, multi-layered humor, wisdom packed.....this wonderful play by virland s harris was directed by Stan Irwin and brought to life with sterling performances by it's outstanding 5 woman cast. It's a work of genius, beautifully done. This movie is Academy Award worthy and it's a shame it didn't make it to the Big Screen theaters to be seen by the wider audience it so richly deserves. Do yourself a favor and buy this movie..... and tell your friends about it!

Each time I have watched this film the more I appreciate it. Ms. Fletcher and Tyson are amazing professionals who carry this film elegantly and credibly. Their friendship is a true sisterhood despite their many differences. You can run through the gamut of feelings of how our elders are treated and viewed and how they adapt.

I was very pleasantly surprised in watching this movie. The performances from both leads were incredibly real. The cinematography was beautiful and the storyline was believable. For a non-Hollywood movie, this is a shining star among independent films. This movie should be on everybody's list.

I too had trouble for the first several minutes, didn't know where it was going but stuck with it and enjoyed it and laughed. Then I watched it a couple of weeks later and came to appreciate the characters and depth of writing. Dealing with aging relatives this movie really hit home. Louise Fletcher is a down-to-earth, hard-knocked realist to Cicely Tyson's ethereal, easy-going, comforting soul who together deal with the other often -intrusive 3 ladies. It's a look at an interesting life and the necessity to maintain control over one's life, and where friendship eases the struggles of age and the demons of doubt it may bring. But also, there are some very funny scenes.
