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

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.

"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.

LOVELY, STILL (2010) is one of the most touching, moving and frightening films I have ever had the privilege to watch. Set in Omaha, Nebraska in a neighborhood that reminds me of my own, this is going to be a tough film to review. To begin on a hard note: why are such great films always "art-house" things that get seen mostly in Canada? Why did this $5 million dollar film rake in a lousy $4,500 opening weekend and gross a total of under $125,000?

You tell me ... after you've seen it!

My perennial favorite and legend Martin Landau stars as Robert Malone, a gaunt, lonely old man who seems haunted by his lack of a life and soul. He's a sweet old man, to be sure, and he gets along well enough - but it seems like he's traveled such a long road all by himself. He bags groceries at a local little market and makes his way home each day; it's an unbreakable routine one would expect of a mentally disabled person. Well, we can see Robert is normal ....

Robert meets Mary (Ellen Burstyn), whom he first sees at work. Soon they are dating, and the scenes with Robert seeking dating advice are laugh-out-loud. Landau, everyone forgets, can be fall-down funny one moment and quite frightening the next. His goofy boss Mike (Adam Scott) is a portrait of incompetent fun. Mary's daughter Alex (Elizabeth Banks) is a beautiful yet apparently tormented creature. There's a lot happening here that you wouldn't begin to believe.

Yet all I can tell you is it happens too often - every day, to too many people. You must see this funny, heart-warming, heart-wrenching film and discover why we are who we are. Nothing more may be divulged, or it will really sort of dampen your first viewing of the film. If you've seen it already, you'll KNOW how good it is.
