An amazing performance by Mary Kay Place in director Kent Jones’s pitch perfect drama about an average woman coming to terms with her life. Incredible performances by the entire cast.

Fantastic performances from an amazing cast of professionals, including Mary Kay, Estelle Parsons, Andrea Martin, and others. It was totally real life, but the story was heart wrenching, and, yes, it was slow. But, it was also engaging. Of course, it was totally depressing as well, so I wouldn’t recommend it for anyone looking for an uplifting story. I’ll probably reflect on the movie in the next few days. Remember, the Peggy Lee Song with the lyrics, ‘is that all there is?’ Expand

A quiet meditation through a series of life events. Mary Kay Place has almost always been great throughout her career, but rarely has she had the chance to play a role so front and center. She's extraordinary here. Almost anyone who sees this film will find something in it that applies to their own life or remind them of someone they love. I was incredibly moved by it. Without question the best film I've seen so far in this still young year. Expand

Mary Kay Place gives an excellent performance in an uncharacteristic dramatic role, backed by a superb cast of supporting players that includes Andrea Martin, Estelle Parsons, Deirdre O'Connell and Jake Lacy. This one may not last long in theaters, so catch it while you have the chance -- you won't be disappointed. Expand

This is a highly nuanced character study about a tired woman who keeps blaming herself for mistakes she did in her past.

This is a highly nuanced character study about a tired woman who keeps blaming herself for mistakes she did in her past.
It is a story about aging, guilt, desire to amend the wrongs Diane did when she was young and a constant struggle to save her drugs-abusing son.
She lives in a small town where everybody knows everybody. There are several interesting twists in the story, and a lot to discuss after.
Performances are excellent, and the movie feels realistic.
The script however is the weakest component of the movie and leaves you with a feeling of something unfinished.

The performances are terrific, and it's great to see an abundance of older female actors. I wish they'd been better served by the script, which is uneven.

I wish they'd been better served by the script, which is uneven. At times it works, but suffers from implausibility, confusing elements, and conflict choices that are unoriginal and - again - implausible as they play out. While I appreciate the opportunity for Mary Kay Place and her supporting cast, it made me wonder if the writer understands women as much as he thinks he does. Expand
