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.
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.
