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

Most of us carry a secret that we take to our death....this one touched me very much. I thought that Ms. Redgrave was outstanding in this movie. I would see it again.

Somewhere in the middle we lost a plot!!!What happened with Harris and Ann following Buddy's death? Was she left to drift out on the sailboat for days? Was Harris called back to the hospital in Boston on an emgerency appendectomy?We missed out on potentially alot of screenplay there!!!!!
