    Living close to all the filming sites, I was diaappointed at the tightness of the scenes in terms of surroundings -- and I got sort of hung-up on the mother-daughter real life relationships, especially to find Meryl Streep showing up at the deathbed scene playing Lila, the role her real-life daughter played as the young bride and close friend of now-dying Ann -- in the early part of the story with Lila playing in scenes with Glenn Close as her mother, until my wife straightened me out, I thought the close (pardon) resemblance between Glenn Close and Lila was such that they were mother-daughter in actual life -- I think there was a good basis for this observation and that Lila's resemblance to Close is greater than that with Streep -- am I off base ?Tiverton RI
