Aurora and Emma are mother and daughter who march to different drummers. Beginning with Emma's marriage, Aurora shows how difficult and loving she can be. The movie covers several years of their lives as each finds different reasons to go on living and find joy. Aurora's interludes with Garrett Breedlove, retired astronaut and next door neighbor are quite striking. In the end, different people show their love in very different ways.Written by

While traveling in the car in Texas, the background shows warehouses from "Miller & Paine", a department store that didn't exist in Texas (but did in Lincoln, Nebraska, where the scene was filmed). See more »

Life is a gap between what we expect to happen and what really occurs.
Aurora doesn't accept the gap and she closes herself in her "daughter & home" micro-world.
Life turns up to be more cruel to her than the average, but she proves to be ready and faces all obstacles that come with outstanding integrity and brave.
So, accept the gap but bé ready.
Memmorable Shirley MacLaine in a universal classic movie.
