In this vibrant, funny, and heartfelt film, a widow and former songstress discovers that life can begin anew at any age. After the death of her beloved dog, Carol (Blythe Danner) finds the everyday activities that have given her life structure – her regular bridge game, gardening, a glass of wine or two – have lost their luster. With the support of three loyal girlfriends (June Squibb, Rhea Perlman, and Mary Kay Place), Carol decides to embrace the world, embarking on an unlikely friendship with her pool maintenance man (Martin Starr), pursuing a new love interest (Sam Elliott), and reconnecting with her daughter (Malin Akerman).
I'll See You in My Dreams is delicate and nuanced, a touching, funny and thoughtful film that trades in honesty rather than artifice. The tender magnetism of Blythe Danner turns an intelligent, sensitive story of love among the not so young into a just about perfect work of art. Funny and poignant - and not just for moviegoers of a certain age, the film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.
