I’ll See You In My Dreams…..a movie review.
Several weeks ago, the Captain and I went to see the movie “I’ll See You In My Dreams”.
This movie was a had-to-see for me for several reasons.
One, I love the title of the movie…not only does it bring out the romantic in me, it is also one of my favorite songs.
Two, ….the stars of the movie are in my age group.
And I have always liked Sam Elliot! He has a very deep voice and natural acting mannerisms that are too cool, whether he is in a Western movie or doing voice-overs for the Ram Truck commercials. 😉
Three,….. I liked that this movie was just a simple movie about everyday life. No shoot ’em up, action packed, hair raising drama.
A simple movie and story line that will most likely not be Oscar nominated and will most likely just fade into the sunset.
But I liked it and the Captain did too. The story-line is simple… as the synopsis suggests:
“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 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, Carol decides to embrace the world, embarking on an unlikely friendship with her pool maintenance man, pursuing a new love interest, and reconnecting with her daughter.”
Like I said a true to life story and I would recommend seeing it, although you might have to get the DVD, as it did not stay in the theaters long.
The simpler movies are like that…..:)
Perhaps that is why I like them so much!
Did I mention that I really like the actor, Sam Elliot?
I’m smiling and I hope you are too!
Have you, my dear readers seen this movie?
It sounds like a lovely movie, Kari.
I really liked it Sandy….thanks for stopping by. 🙂
