A bittersweet winner-driven by the strong performances and sharply observed nuances in both McGowan's script and direction.

Lovely performances by Cromwell and Bujold, as well as those playing their extended family of children and friends, are understated yet truthful. And it's good to be reminded that love that withstands a lifetime is a most precious thing.

In essence, it's a TV movie with all the simplifications that suggests. But it's a TV movie raised to something more by Cromwell and Bujold.

Hopefully, [James] Cromwell will have more highlights in the December of his years, but Still Mine is one to be proud of.

Still Mine is sentimental and often hokey, but it's a wonderful showcase for veteran character actor Cromwell.

When Still Mine's title reflects the sincerity and adoration we witness between two very private people - rather than a declaration of ownership - McGowan's movie is worthy of the wonderful cast he's attracted.

Writer-director Michael McGowan covers all the bases here -- the long-standing romance between the aging couple, the hovering concerns of their son and daughter, the constant head-butting with the building inspector -- with well-paced confidence.

An Occupy Wall Street supporter is part of the most conservative indie film you'll see all year. Still Mine is a heartbreaking classic no matter your ideology, though.

Writer-director Michael McGowan (Saint Ralph) shows affinity for the subtle undercurrents of a long, happy marriage, but the friction between Cromwell and the government bureaucracy stays one-note.

The man-against-the-system story is good and hopeful, but the love story between senior citizens is the reason to watch "Still Mine."

Bring a handkerchief, or possibly a bedsheet, to "Still Mine"; this fact-based, beautifully acted drama could wring tears from a brick.

Still Mine mourns days gone by without being mawkish and meditates on age without being maudlin.

It is about a husband and wife, partners through six decades, grappling with issues of aging, and how to spend what time together remains with grace and dignity.

While this slight Canadian film has limited appeal for general audiences, seniors and families affected by Alzheimer's will find much to identify with.
