Movie Info

Based on the best-selling novel written by Kent Haruf and adapted for the screen by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber (The Fault in Our Stars), Our Souls at Night is set in Colorado and begins when Addie Moore (Jane Fonda) pays an unexpected visit to a neighbor, Louis Waters (Robert Redford). Her husband died years ago, as did his wife, and in such a small town they'd been neighbors for decades, but had little contact. Their children live far away and they are all alone in their big houses. She seeks to establish a connection, and make the most of the rest of the time they have.

Much of this is too hokey by half, yet the two leading actors, their skills unfaded, command your attention to the end.

These are good people, and these are great actors portraying these good people, and if you not rooting for Louis and Addie to find comfort and love and peace with one another in their last years, then I just don't know what to tell you.

Sep 29, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

A contrived but surprisingly enjoyable return visit with two frequent co-stars and a few other wonderful actors.

Our Souls at Night is a small film, and it's often such a placid one that it feels like it's standing in place.

Those who stop to savor it could find themselves richly rewarded in witnessing this pair together again on screen.

As comforting, low-key and unfussy as your grandmother's tablecloth.
