I still can’t decide if this movie was very boring or rather wonderful. It is slow, it is inconclusive and it is performance, rather than plot-driven, and has been almost universally panned by critics. What I liked about it was that it seemed to transcend its story — the daughters of a dying woman gathering around her deathbed — and become a sort of parable of life in general, but one without a lesson in it. The main problem with this movie is the lack of chemistry between Danes’s and Wilson’s characters, which made their huge love affair unbelievable. But apart from that, the all-star cast delivers the goods, especially Hugh Dancy as Lila’s little brother Buddy and their mother, played by Glenn Close, who gets about one scene but is absolutely stunning in it.
