Trivia: Jeff Bridges was offered the leading male part but turned it down.
A slice of older life - Quietly & beautifully acted
A slightly-over-middle-age couple finds themselves in more than a rut,
post-post empty nest. What to do?
An overly-simplified plot outline for a lovely, sweet, funny, sad,
quiet movie that allows the cast's acting talents to shine. A great
script with spot-on character development. None of your over-dramatics
We all know about Meryl Streep & Tommy Lee Jones, but even they deliver
some newness. But Steve Carell gives us a nuanced performance without
the smallest hint of shtick. Notice Elisabeth Shue in a small part that
delivers big. As well as Jean Smart & Mimi Rogers.
