As far as films about couples dealing with the female partner losing her mind go, Still Mine is pretty pedestrian.

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.

Takes full advantage of the ornery authority and distinctive Thomas Hart Bentonesque physiognomy of its star, James Cromwell, in a rare lead role.

If last year's searing old-age tragedy, "Amour" - or 2006's bravely blunt "Away From Her" - weren't digestible enough for you, perhaps this mild romance will suffice.

The mounting structure-and the subsequent stop-work orders-frames the couple's reflections about the approaching uncertainties of their twilight years, which they deliver with humor and affection.

Like his character, Cromwell has the timber to build great things and make it last.

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.

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.

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

Beautifully acted, if a tad overly sentimental in its views of old age

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.

It is so sweetly portrayed it will make you eager to get old.

Hits the high notes even though the tone of sorrow and frustration does not vary.

The poignancy is somewhat predictable, but still tenderly moving and dignified . . . James Cromwell gives his familiar character considerable gravitas.

It's a tender, sharply observed drama.
