    Evening is a star-studded soap opera that moves at a snails pace that would have been much better without the flashbacks to a weekend wedding that plays like a Douglas Sirk take on The Great Gatsby. But I'd put down another ten bucks just to see the 10 minute scene between Vannessa Redgrave and Meryl Streep over again! It was like Pacino & DeNiro in Heat, one of those landmark Evening is a star-studded soap opera that moves at a snails pace that would have been much better without the flashbacks to a weekend wedding that plays like a Douglas Sirk take on The Great Gatsby.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The good part of this movie is the strong cast. Otherwise it tries hard to be artistic, but the plot moves way too slowly. Also I do not like that they made some kind of love idol from this man who kind of destroyed the lives of many (even if it wasn't his intention) . Ann spent her remaining time on her death bed regretting that she had never married him, whereas the death of poor Buddy was just swept over like he didn't even matter to her. Expand

    Susan Minot’s resplendent novel of a dying woman…stumbles on its way to the screen.
  2. What a cast but what a disappointment.

    Individual moments are not without their felicitous touches -- mainly due to the cast, which is rich to the point of improbability.
