A moving story about loss, acceptance, and, ultimately, the value of human kindness and connection. Residents of Midwestern industrial towns will recognize so much in the scene and setting. It's an interesting creative risk (in Hollywood) to star an elderly, troubled character as the lead; Peter Gerety's performance as silent, limping Allery Parks—especially in the earlier scenes—is both alarming and stirring. Talia Shire is equally believable as his caring, worried wife. The visual details—from what Allery packs in his lunch box, to his trembling lower lip, to the blankets Iola pulls from the closet in their modest house—create an intimate real-ness. It's a great slice-of-life character study with an (unfortunately) timely topic.
