Starting my day with watching it was a good idea. The great performances, the good transitions from funny to sad, the very pretty outfits and dresses of MacLaine. I just hate how much it made me weep, but just because a movie makes you cry, doesn't mean it's no good. I just have a weakness for family movies.
Shirley MacLaine is a great actress and she absolutely owns this film with her performance as Aurora. This film is a tear jerker but it earns our sympathy with great acting and well developed characters. This film is about the importance of family and a significant other. This film is an emotional roller coaster that has a lot of wisdom in the details.
