Beautifully acted, if a tad overly sentimental in its views of old age

The unforced intimacy between James Cromwell and Genevieve Bujold as a senior couple in the fact-based Still Mine is rare to see in characters of any age. For actors playing a husband in his late eighties and his wife of over sixty years, it's remarkable.

Geneviève Bujold and especially James Cromwell do much to enrich and humanize this sensitively done geezers-in-peril entry.

A sincere chamber work that's of a piece about the mutual love of an elderly couple.

Cromwell and Bujold have an easy, convincing rapport, creating a detailed emotional history for this couple that makes them seem devoted, and not mere twinkly geriatric clichés.

McGowan's film doesn't want to get its hands dirty, which winds up making its portrait of cruel twilight-years realities-and the enduring power of love to see one through those difficulties-as easily digestible as its lush rural panoramas are picturesque.

As far as films about couples dealing with the female partner losing her mind go, Still Mine is pretty pedestrian.

Proof positive that long-lived individuals possess the resilience to handle anything and everything that life throws at them.

A movingly-acted tale of undying devotion and encroaching mortality.

It's a measured, heart-felt piece...that warmly invites you to wonder over how richly symbolic the building of a house in a movie can be.

And while there are suggestions that it might get into darker territory, like Sarah Polley's Away From Her, this is more about how hard it can be to love someone for such a long time - and what it's like to be as stubborn as a damn mule.

A David and Goliath story of the geriatric set, Still Mine is a sentimental but thanks to James Cromwell's performance an engaging story of love, devotion and determination

Still Mine will leave viewers with a lump in the throat and a hopeful determination to face administrative adversity with as much stoicism and grace.

Still Mine is a measured but considerably moving celebration of things hand-crafted, traditional and built to last.

Slow and meticulously crafted, Still Mine wins points for finding the right pace to play out this story of old traditions versus new rules, youth versus decrepitude, and loving denial versus responsible acceptance.

Quietly observes a love tested by infirmity and bureaucracy, becoming all the stronger for it.
