Nick Cassavetes' first feature celebrates the acting grandeur of his mom Gena Rowlands, casting her in the lead role as a older woman who would rather stick to her independent lifestyle than be dependent on her kids; I wish the script were better.
A sensitive, honest, touching study of the seemingly limited options faced by a woman whose age belies her energy, enthusiasm and ability to enjoy herself whenever the opportunity presents itself.
The impressive acting can cover up only so many glaring holes in a film that doesn't really know what it wants to say.
A tender and perceptive psychological portrait ...
Rowlands infuses Mildred's interior life with a complexity that isn't always apparent from her somewhat chilly, bland exterior.
The movie is likable and sympathetic but probably too muted to compel much damn-the -torpedoing to the multiplex.
Cassavetes' film reveals that he has a sharp eye for human nature.
a performance-driven picture--and what driving.
Charts the transformation of a middle-class suburban widow.
Cassavetes conveys a warmth and easygoing style that are rare in American cinema these days, and he's assembled a first-rate cast to help him give this familiar yarn a compelling spin.
Cassavetes has made a movie about a slice of life. But it is about manageable, not unmanageable, life. It has an underlying contentment.
Nick Cassavetes does his father no disservice with this film anchored by his mother Gena Rowlands and Marisa Tomei. Nicely done.
