Rated 6/10.

An oscar-calibre performance by Ellen Burstyn highlights an otherwise unremarkable little film about an old woman lost in her memories as she comes face-to-face with her own mortality. This is pretty much a kitchen sink drama with no great insights or profound words of why did I enjoy it so much? Aside from Ms. Burstyn’s dynamic energy I guess I just got lost in the film’s slow rhythms and various small town tragedies. Everyone else hated it.....sigh.

i enjoyed watching this movie very much, even though I read the previous readers' comments before watching it. I think the movie displays the fact on how the decisions we make can change the coming years we live our life.
I saw it that if she could go back and make those decisions again her life would not have been so hard, but she loved and lost many times and is that not called a fortunate life!

I like that she never seems angry, she just lives her life.

Good - This could've been so much better. I loved the film in the present day (the terrific Ellen Burstyn plays an old woman being sent to a retirement home by her son and daughter-in-law) where most of the "real" drama exists. The flashbacks of her life (played by a younger actress) is uneven and muddied with typical soap opera scenes. One of the best scenes in the film demonstrates why she's in the predicament that she's in - it's the scene between her and her priest. Enjoy Burstyn's performance in this one. But if you want to see Burstyn at her haunting best, get a copy of "Requiem for a Dream (2000)" - the most horrific film on drug abuse you could ever witness.
