In his first lead role after decades of playing supporting characters, James Cromwell gives a tour de force performance in STILL MINE, an exquisitely crafted and deeply affecting love story about a couple in their twilight years. Based on true events and laced with wry humor, STILL MINE tells the heartfelt tale of Craig Morrison (Academy Award (R) nominee Cromwell), who comes up against the system when he sets out to build a more suitable house for his ailing wife Irene (Academy Award (R) nominee Geneviève Bujold).

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Growing old together can't be easy, but in this case, it's certainly beautiful."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"Bring a handkerchief, or possibly a bedsheet, to "Still Mine"; this fact-based, beautifully acted drama could wring tears from a brick."
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"A bittersweet winner-driven by the strong performances and sharply observed nuances in both McGowan's script and direction."
‑ Richard Knight, Windy City Times
"Lovely performances by Cromwell and Bujold, as well as those playing their extended family of children and friends, are understated yet truthful. And it's good to be reminded that love that withstands a lifetime is a most precious thing."
‑ Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle
"Still Mine is sentimental and often hokey, but it's a wonderful showcase for veteran character actor Cromwell."
‑ Josh Bell, Las Vegas Weekly
"Writer-director Michael McGowan covers all the bases here -- the long-standing romance between the aging couple, the hovering concerns of their son and daughter, the constant head-butting with the building inspector -- with well-paced confidence."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"[A] tough-minded tearjerker, based on a true story ..."
‑ Peter Keough, Boston Globe
"Still together, and still in love"
‑ Robert Denerstein, Movie Habit
"In essence, it's a TV movie with all the simplifications that suggests. But it's a TV movie raised to something more by Cromwell and Bujold."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"When Still Mine's title reflects the sincerity and adoration we witness between two very private people - rather than a declaration of ownership - McGowan's movie is worthy of the wonderful cast he's attracted."
‑ Jeff Meyers, Metro Times (Detroit, MI)
"Writer-director Michael McGowan (Saint Ralph) shows affinity for the subtle undercurrents of a long, happy marriage, but the friction between Cromwell and the government bureaucracy stays one-note."
‑ Andrea Gronvall, Chicago Reader
"It is about a husband and wife, partners through six decades, grappling with issues of aging, and how to spend what time together remains with grace and dignity."
‑ Hillary Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Written and directed with an uncommon straightforwardness..."
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
"Hopefully, [James] Cromwell will have more highlights in the December of his years, but Still Mine is one to be proud of."
‑ Matt Kelemen,
"Takes full advantage of the ornery authority and distinctive Thomas Hart Bentonesque physiognomy of its star, James Cromwell, in a rare lead role."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
