Product Description

With the approach of Christmas causing him to feel lonely in life and love, Robert Malone ((Academy Award Winner Martin Landau) braves the wintery snow to arrive home from his job at the grocery store only to find a stranger (Academy Award Winner Ellen Burstyn) standing in his home.

What begins as an odd and awkward encounter quickly blossoms into what appears to be a romantic late life love affair that takes us on a heartfelt and wonderful journey which takes an unexpected turn.

Skillfully and sensitively directed by Nik Fackler, the film also stars Elizabeth Banks and Adam Scott, and features original music by Conor Oberst and a score by Nate Walcott and Mike Mogis of Bright Eyes


A truly magical experience of cinema brilliance. --VideoViews

A miracle of a movie. Beautiful, full of love and life. --John Foote, incontention.com

What a lovely surprise - loved it! It stayed with me for days after. I kept remembering snippets of it. It's not what I thought it was. The story unfolds slowly and subtly clues are dropped that something is more then what it seems. Robert is an elderly guy living alone and he works at a supermarket. Mary is his new elderly next door neighbor. Mary encourages Robert and they start a relationship.

It's filmed in Omaha, Nebraska during the Christmas season. There's lots of snow, which is beautiful and creates one of the most memorable scenes. Robert notices the falling snow and says something like, was it always this beautiful, did we miss it? Mary encourage Robert to live in the present. The acting, the story and the visuals are wonderful. The morning rituals of Roberts waking up and grooming are funny and full of emotion, what a great actor Martin Landau is! There are many funny and poignant scenes. For example, Robert soliciting advice from others on that ever so important first date. Ellen Burstyn, as Mary, is fabulous too in this role. The chemistry between the two seems real. The two main supporting roles of Mary's daughter, Elizabeth Banks, and Robert's manager, Adam Scott, are well acted, interesting, and add depth to the story. A timeless favorite! I highly recommend it. It's ok if you cry!

I first saw the trailer for this movie quite a while before its release. I wrote down the title, and unfortunately forgot about it. Flash forward a few months, and i see this movie in my recommendations on Netflix. Well, quite frankly it still didn't ring a bell at first, but i went ahead and rented it. Now, i'm younger than 30, male, and pretty open to movies. But when i read the synopsis, i wasn't too thrilled about just another love story. Ellen Burstyn was what made me take a chance.
While watching this wonderful movie, i started out pretty confused. I questioned certain character traits in a few people, but they didn't leave a big enough impression for me to keep agonizing over them. About 10 minutes into it, i started to smile. The two main characters just seemed to be made for eachother, and everything they did just fit. Scenes that would normally make my eyes roll, really touched me. For instance, these two wonderful strangers kiss for the first time, and Christmas lights flash on. Needless to say, my smile stayed on for quite some time. Things just worked for these characters.

Then the pessimist in my questioned how perfect everything was. I've seen my fair share of movies that seem good at first, then turn into train wrecks. However, just when i was expecting the worst to happen, a glimpse of jealousy is shown from Mr. Landau's character that makes me think, "oh, here's the hitch." Which draws my attention away from the normal "it's way too perfect to be like this the whole movie" attitude.

The different characters do very endearing acts for and with eachother, and it's all wonderful again. And then that pesky pessimist in me is tapping my shoulder again preparing me for the worst.

This is an extraordinary movie. I can't believe the director is so young - his wisdom is way beyond his years. Landau and Burstyn are luminous and un-Botoxed in this haunting drama about what true love really is. Be sure to watch very carefully as the details give insight into what is quickly revealed at the end - that is how everybody is really related. I have been thinking about it daily since I saw it. You will never forget it!

"When I saw you everything fit. It was like breathing."

I hope someone someday says something like that to me. If you have heard those sentiments, bless you. Like the one who loves you, your love brings light into the world.

This is a sweet wonderful film. It begins gently. Give it the time. If you do, it will weave it's magic, capturing and cradling your heart as the story unfolds before you.

I especially liked the scene in which Mary (Ellen Burstyn) asks Martin (Martin Landau) to spent the next day, Christmas Day, with her. Martin, looking sad and pensive as though he's looking into the past, replies that he has never spent Christmas Day with anyone. Mary pauses. Looks up at him, and seeing his mood says cheerily, "So is that a "yes"?" With those fives words she acknowledges his mood, and nudges him back into the present moment. It's a moment that offers a future together as a sweet promise.

And to top it all off, the music is wonderful.

I saw this movie nearly two years ago and have watched 150+ movies since, yet it haunts me with its beauty. It was playing at a film festival that I attend annually and was my favorite out of more than 25 movies I caught that year.

First off, this movie was especially well written. If you are tired of the regurgitated swill that Hollywood increasingly produces this will definitely appeal to you.

As you watch the movie, the characters are well developed and honest. They could be your neighbor or a friend. The acting was exceptional and believable as an elderly man slowly loses his ability to connect with the world around him.

But beware -things are never what they appear on the surface.

If you like a good love story that doesn't need sex and violence to "enhance" your enjoyment, this qualifies as an experience to be savored. The plot line is well developed but provides a surprise that few will foresee.

Furthermore, several of my movie friend's stated that when watching it a second time, you catch greater subtleties within the premise of the movie and that they actually enjoyed it even more. What could be a greater endorsement from serious movie aficionados?!

It's a definite must see, in fact, I enjoyed this as much as "Love Story". Oh and don't forget to bring some tissues!
