There are moments during Lovely, Still when it feels like you're trapped with Martin Landau and Ellen Burstyn in a kitschy musical Christmas snowglobe that someone keeps shaking.

The places where Fackler has problems or allows things to get a tad too sentimental are smoothed over by the unmatched skills of the effortlessly superb Burstyn and Landau.

Audience Reviews for Lovely, Still

With a beautiful story, great camera-work, interesting characters, and absolutely incredible acting from Martin Landau and Ellen Burstyn, "Lovely, Still" is a great romance film that is initially heartwarming, but ultimately turns bitter-sweet. The characters were not as compelling as they could have been, and I felt manipulated to cry, but "Lovely, Still" is lovely, still.

Beautifully acted and initially charming but ultimately bittersweet.

Summary: When his beautiful new neighbor Mary (Ellen Burstyn) asks him out on a date, elderly bachelor Robert (Martin Landau) suddenly finds himself swept up in the excitement and panic of new love. But as romance blossoms between the couple, an unexpected challenge arises that threatens to undermine the fledgling relationship.

My Thoughts: "Great performances by the seasoned actor's Martin Landau and Ellen Burstyn. Adam Scott and Elizabeth Banks were great as well. It's a great love story that goes in a direction that I had not seen coming. The story is bittersweet, and a bit of a tear jerker. But there is no denying how wonderfully sweet these two characters are. But to say to much about this film would be giving away the beautiful story. So my final words are, see this film. I am not one for romantic films, but this one really got to me. I absolutely loved it."
