Just a terrific movie...well told and well acted. Emma Thompson'sperformance is marvelous and don't understand why the film has not received more attention.

A very touching story. You never know how the people you meet will change your life, until you are open to the connection.

Emma Thompson is an amazing actor, but the story itself left me feeling a bit manipulated by the author. It also seemed like it was trading on a certain gender currency; I couldn't help but wonder how it would have come across if all the roles had been flipped gender-wise.

Started off pretty good but the sub plots failed to show the main character's complexity and instead seemed more an unnecessary distraction. With two of my favorite actors in the film, I anticipated something better.
