An Important Film for women AND men!
11 November 2016 | by jlipson-17072See all my reviews

An excellent film! Alexander Janko's screenplay masterfully combines Joan Anderson's first three books into a moving film which tells a story that women AND men can identify with...the story of reclaiming ourselves at mid-life, finding our authenticity, learning to live and laugh and find fulfillment in self and, ultimately, in relationships. The film is beautiful in scenery, music, insight and depth. Joan's story and Janko's screenplay bring the viewer moments of laughter mixed with moments of insight and clarity, substance and depth. There are lessons to learn from watching Joan's story unfold and, if we pay attention, we can all use the wisdom in this movie to help us journey towards a more authentic and fulfilling life. And while it appears to be a film for women, my husband and my 31 year old son enjoyed this film immensely (which brought me great pride in the men that they are!) This is an important film and one worth seeing!
