Still Mine is Mr. Cromwell's film from first scene to closing credits...he is always present, alive and real, with a wealth of understated feelings. This is the greatest performance of his rich career.
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.
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.
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.
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.
