An old story of course but this one has some interesting wrinkles: the wife is left caring for the husband's elderly mother and aunt. How does that happen? Well, because the wife is the nicest of nice people - which is what makes this film frustrating at times - that she never really tells him he can take his whole family with him.
Brenda Blethyn is terrific in this role, sympathetic, charitable, caregiving, loving. As someone says, she is a true saint. Rosemary Harris is stellar in her role as the cantankerous matriarch. Not a happy ending, not a sad ending, just a real one.
Highly recommended for Brenda Blethyn fans!
