    The movie set in rural Ireland captures the romance of such an area perfectly. a beautiful story line which shows love can be found everywhere with an ultimate reminder that life is short and can change at any moment, would recommend to everyone but just remember to bring tissues...

    Beautiful scenery, good actors..but the story line was not inspiring. Would have been a better film if they delved deeper into why the two main characters fall in love (underdeveloped story line). Not a bad film by any means…just could have been better.

    Very good movie, great acting and a tear jerking ending. Hopefully this doesn't fall under the radar this year.

    Just beautiful. Sums up the complexity of relationships, second chances and love. I just adore this film, feels like I found a gem.

    What a beautiful film. The three central characters: James Cosmo, Brid Brennan, Catherine Walker all put on fabulous, powerful performances. As a 12+ film it's suitable to a wide audience. I love the pace of the film which created tension points in the relationship between the three main characters. It isn't anchored in history which allows the film to focus on the story. It's a real story and one gets the feeling that you have been invited into their lives. The central themes are family relationships, caring for the elderly, finding love late in life. The cinematography is outstanding balancing beautiful landscape photography in particular Currane Peninsula, Achill County Mayo, Ireland and close up portrait style shots of the main characters. Paul Henry, Artist would be delighted as Achill is represented in the magic of clouds and light. The film built no temporary sets instead used existing buildings adding to the authenticity of the story - Currane House (The George), St. Colman's, Wavecrest, Fisherman's Cottage etc bringing them alive and into public viewing. The scenes in the long narrow Hallway of Currane House was filmed wonderfully, what a clever thing to do using the natural light in particular light coming through the front door, one felt that you were walking along the corridor with the actors and had been just invited in as a guest. This corridor creates a central 'spine' for the film. Very creative. I highly recommended this film.
