I shall die, but that is all I shall do for death.

I first watched the preview for this movie only because it had Piper Laurie in it. And who can forget her performance as the “religious to a fault mother” in Carrie. (the first one). After seeing the preview I then rented the movie and after watching it several times, (ahem…for research) I decided to write a review.
(Caution – Spoilers) This movie is for the most part well acted, and believable except for possibly Brook Adams. She seemed really uncomfortable with and disconnected from her character which made her character not really believable. However Piper Laurie, Emily Baldoni, Emily Goss, and Shannon Collis, all turned in outstanding performances that are the glue that held the story together. The flashbacks are well timed and are not just random (as in some other films) and actually flow with the time line. Watching the relationship between Louise and Rose as it grows from friends to Lovers to soulmates is extremely believable, to the point you can feel the passion. You come to understand why Rose is attracted to Louise and her free spirit and openness to new ideas and experiences and is totally awed by Louise’s fearlessness in the pursuit. Emily Goss completely captures the essence of Louise’s character, to the point that you not only believe it, you can feel her energy as well. Shannon Collis’s portrayal of the young, shy and demure Rose is also well done, and you can see how she, through her relationship with Louise, comes alive and learns to live, if only to a point. She totally captures the essence of someone who is in love and only to late realizes her mistake and what she gave up to “be proper” and the price she paid. Piper Laurie’s portrayal of “Old” Rose is outstanding and unlike in some other movies where the old version of the character seems totally disconnected from the young version, here the two stay completely in line and you can see and feel it. Old Rose does come to Allison’s (the granddaughter) aide but also chastises Allison when her comments are out of line. The scene where the three women Allison, Rose, and Patty are sitting on the porch and Allison admits that she’s in a relationship with another woman, and how fiercely Rose defends her when Patty goes off on a tirade, is totally believable because of how well Piper Laurie connected with and portrayed her character.
Emily Baldoni’s portrayal of Allison is well done also. She captures the total essence of a young woman who is struggling with not only her feelings but the challenges that life has thrown her way, and it’s interesting to watch her character develop as well.
I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. It brings to light the timelessness of love and how love truly knows no boundaries, no matter how anyone may try to define it. If you watch this movie with an open mind and heart you will not be disappointed. However if you are one of those that only see things in Black and White (it’s either right or it’s wrong), then I’d suggest watching either a comedy or war movie. Not that you’ll understand them either. 😊.

A skillfully crafted indie film...
Verified purchase
This film is Indie movie making done exceptionally well.

Well directed, by Melanie Mayron, the expertly crafted dialogue and nuances of screenwriter Jan Miller Corran (who co-produced) and the production of LeeAnne Matusek delivered a film that was an absolute pleasure to watch.

The flashbacks were well-executed and fit the flow of the story with grace.

Piper Laurie and Emily Goss delivered award-worthy performances.

A movie that offers support and encouragement for freedom in personal, emotional choices. Well done!

Hauntingly moving and stunningly beautiful.
Verified purchase
This is an exquisitely intimate film. It allowed me to get to know the characters without any irritating political agenda or formulated sexually exploitative scenes. This is a truly beautiful and sensual love story, which captures the innocent social veneer of the sixties, before people's deepest secrets became talk show subjects. Outstanding acting, directing and writing. In particular, Emily Goss's performance made this independent film feel Academy Award winning worthy. A must see.

wonder movie !!!!!!! loving , Heartfelt, And basically true story
Verified purchase
you get the full aspect of lesbianism. You get the fear of telling others, (minor in homophobic). You get love and it doesn't matter who with or their gender. they need more films like this in the mainstream Hollywood or in all Media films where it can be seen.

A sweet and intimate love story
Verified purchase
Beautifully done. I wish there were more lesbian movies out there that were as heartfelt and intimate as this one. It made me smile and remember a time when I was young and in love. The storyline between three generations of women was interesting and kept me engaged the entire movie.

If you are in the mood for a thought provoking movie and love story this is it! The cinema photography is wonderful, the colors and characters are rich. The story flows very well. I was engaged the entire time, it truly was written and directed well. Loved the James Baldwin references. It was absolutely everything that I was looking for when I rented it and I will be adding it to my library. Well done guy's! 👏🏾 👍🏾Well done, indeed.

I can’t say enough good things! Go watch it!

I absolutely loved it. I had reservations after reading a few negative reviews, which after seeing it are unfounded. The acting is too notch, everyone is gorgeous and the story is beautiful.

I did not know till the end it was based on a true story! My mouth dropped when I read it. It’s a great period piece about love. I also adored the two female protagonists... I want more movies with f/f relationships to the caliber as this one.

Thank you all involved!

Emotionally stimulating
Verified purchase
Absolutely beautiful story. I was engaged with empathy and sympathy for almost all of the characters. One exception. Who, in their right freakin mind, cast the mother? Do you not like her? Yes, as you should, but who believes she is the daughter/mother? She looks older than her mother, especially with all the plastic surgery nonsense. Still 5 stars for me because this resonates a great positivity across generations of accepting the difficulties love, loss, and the complexities of different perspectives within the immediate family.
