It's a delight to see Olympia Dukakis and Brenda Fricker, superb talents and Oscar winners both, share almost every frame of Cloudburst.

A rough-edged Olympia Dukakis steals much of this comedy road movie about two ageing lesbians who go to Canada to get married. Enjoyable, but unremarkable.

The feisty actresses clearly relish their vivid roles.

The two actors...bring out the best in these two women in spite of the plot lapses and odd tonal shifts...you believe wholeheartedly that these two are deeply in love, and Dukakis and Fricker gift their characters with a real bond of intimacy.
