Audience Reviews for Tara Road

Two women who have suffered loss - one lost her son and another's husband left her for his pregnant mistress. The two women escape their lives by doing a house exchange for 2 months. Good cast.

Okay. I have not read the book this is based on, and I can't say the movie really makes me want to run out and get it.
I think this would maybe appeal to an older woman, or one who has dealt with infidelity or loss of a child.
Of the two I warmed more to Ria, played nicely by Olivia Williams. Andie Macdowell I found very dry here. Though I felt sorry for her, I did not especially feel moved or overly convinced.
The movie itself is filmed very nicely and the soundtrack works well. I would say it is okay to catch on tv, but not a must-see.

Caught this one part way through, but picked it up pretty quick. More of a made for TV type of film, but pretty enjoyable anyhow.
