    Tired story, weird editing and pacing
    How I want to see another alien but for not. This movie with is a group of older recognizable actors making a movie with actor narratives about alcoholism. The narrative are up in the air with me as to whether they added or just seem to be transition aids.

    More of a sad tale than comedy with a very old story. Not just alcoholism but the entire progression and issues. Been there so many times. Let's try something different. This must have been a personal reach out from someone telling there story. Hey hate to tell you - but this is a common day occurrence. About as varied and interesting as cars changing at a traffic light.

    But I will say what was sad was flow and disjointed nature of the movie. It was grueling to watch not only the subject but just the way the movie was put together. I think I blame it on the editing. Visually things seemed to be shot at the right angle, focus, panning and stuff like that but the scene to scene and where are we going was not to my appreciation.

    I saw nothing but old late career actors giving them something to do and then this tired story was finished off with editing that tanked it.

    I would have moved on after 15 minutes but I paid for it and that made me stick it it.

    Of course I think you can tell I would recommend you watch something else.

    A Rare Gem in These Days
    Ms. Weaver makes this role seem effortless. I totally related to her character.

    I have to search diligently these days, to occasionally find a gem of a movie, and this one is one of those special few.

    The acting, the story, the characters, the setting, the score,the camera work....everything, was authentic, beautifully and excellently executed.

    The only tiny thought I had, which did not lesson my enjoyment, was why they didn't go with a more authentic Maine accent. No big deal.

    A must see movie for those of us who are not entertained or much impressed with what is most popular of movie making these days.
