Movie Info

A touching tale of love between misfits, this is the story of a lonely spinster with a terminal illness and a college drop-out with family problems who meet and fall in love. This film is sensitively handled with a subtlety not usually found in this type of movie.

Cheerfully dreary.

One of those immensely modest little 1970s dramedy gems that nobody talks about... but every time anyone sees one of them, their response is always the same: "that was a great little movie".

Maggie Smith is wonderful, Timothy Bottoms less so. A very seventies movie.
