Trivia

Over the back of the chesterfield in the cottage you can see a "Hudson's Bay Blanket". A white blanket with multicolored stripes, this blanket has been a staple in Canadian households, particularly cottages, over the years. See more »

Goofs

On the final scene, while standing face to face in an open space (no buildings or other structures casting shadows), Helen's face is brightly lit by sunlight on her left cheek, while Will is in a dim/uniform light. This suggests they were filmed at different times of the day. See more »

Great Movie, like reading a short story about 'life'.
26 August 2015 | by TanteWailekaSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed this movie. Watched it at 2:00 am when I was writing the final revision of my latest book. I actually stopped working to watch it in entirety when I usually just listen to movies with one ear while working on my writings. Several other commentators did not like this movie. I don't know what they were expecting, I wasn't expecting anything. Netflix just 'recommended' it to me, and I said 'okay whatever'. It wasn't 'deep', it didn't make me waste time thinking about it, it was just an enjoyable semi-suspenseful movie. There was some good emotional moments and the main character, a female doctor grieving for her husband who had died the winter before, was well acted by the beautiful, middle-aged actress whose name I just forgot. (I would have said 'the fall before' but it was Canada so October is really 'winter'.) Along comes a youngish guy who is injured. He's cute, but BFD most actors in Canadian/American films tend to be good looking, which is a shame since most PEOPLE are just average looking. That's why I generally prefer BBC productions or, these days, NOLLYwood movies (Nigeria) because the people look like your neighbors. Anyway I recommend it for a rainy afternoon with a box of homemade popcorn and a sweetie. Likely he'll be reading a book or watching ESPN on his hand-held, but hey, that's fine. After the movie is over, you can go to bed and bother dissecting this movie (or whatever was playing on ESPN).
