Critic Reviews for I'll See You in My Dreams
Avoids the obvious, delivering a bittersweet observational drama which pulls the heartstrings.
A touching, funny and thoughtful film that trades in honesty rather than artifice.
I'll See You in My Dreams is delicate and nuanced, with writing that rejects, or at least reshapes, the cliches of movies about people facing the glare of their sunset years.
The film cleverly uses the conventions more typical of romantic comedies several decades its junior ...
Danner is probably the main reason to see the movie, and her screen presence is impressive; she's an actor who manages to bring gravitas to any role, and that includes her work in goofy things like Ben Stiller's Meet the Parents series.
Audience Reviews for I'll See You in My Dreams
A patchwork quilt of wish fulfillment and dream for all the single ladies out there, the senior single ladies. Blythe Danner is our ever elegant surrogate in this day trip to Autumn, a wineglass never far from her graceful fingers, and capably aided by friends Mary Kay Place and Rhea Perlman. The highlight: Danner's version of the delectable "Cry Me A River". Like many of the dreams of filmdom though no hair is ever out of place, and even an intrusive rodent seems tame and Disney- fied.
Beautiful from start to finish, "I'll See You in My Dreams" follows Carol, a middle-aged woman who recently lost her dog, and is still getting over her late husband of 20 years. Following her as she learns to let go of certain aspects of here life and welcome in new people is just an amazing viewing experience. Blythe Danner and Sam Elliott share fantastic chemistry, as does Martin Starr. Essentially, this picture is about learning to let go, let in, and learn about life in general. There are so many hidden messages about life throughout this film, that it will demand multiple viewings. With extremely believable dialogue, superb direction, and brilliant performances, "I'll See You in My Dreams" may be in the tight race for my favourite film of 2015. This is as simple of a premise as you can get, but the maturity level of screenplay is cranked up to eleven, which makes it that much more engaging. To me, this little film is a revelation, I (to put it bluntly), cannot find a single thing to complain about. "I'll See You in My Dreams" is beautiful.
Blythe Danner gives a real nice performance as the widow in search of some human touch but it is Martin Starr that really shines in this very enjoyable movie. His Lloyd the pool boy is a truly nuanced and heart-felt turn for the comedic actor (as we witnessed in Freaks & Geeks, Party Down and all the Aptow movies). I want to be Sam Elliott. (8--1-15)
