As Constance (Natasha Richardson) and Nina (Toni Collette) gather at the deathbed of their mother, Ann (Vanessa Redgrave), they learn for the first time that their mother lived an entire other lifetime during one evening 50 years ago, one she kept secret all their lives. In vivid flashbacks, the young Ann (played by Claire Daines) spends one night with a man named Harris (Patrick Wilson), whom she'd remember so many years later as the love of her life. As her daughters try to face the loss of their mother and the struggle to be happy in their own lives, they piece together an idea of love, happiness, and the woman they called their mother. ~ Cammila Collar, Rovi

I loved this movie & highly recommend it. I picked up the video & saw absolutely no reviews. My husband & I found it similar to the Notebook. . Excellent performances, beautiful location, meaningful moments. A rarity in films today.
Wow, wonderful movie, wonderful cast. Very profound about life choices, friendship, love, death -- beautifully done. Sometimes I avoid movies like this because I think they are going to be slow, but this one is so compelling -- from the setting at Cape Cod, to the characters, some very rich, others not so much, all mixed together -- some good social observations -- to the relationships in their complexity and love. I really cried at one point, tears that have been pent up for a long time and it felt great. Also, all the actors are just top rate, the very best. When Meryl Streep's character arrives, she has some wisdom that is profound and that I really needed at that moment. I just love this movie!
