This intimate, low-budget drama directed by Emmy-winning actress Melanie Mayron (remember her from 1980’s series Thirtysomething?) sees the return to the big screen of Hollywood legend Piper Laurie. The 86-year-old actress, nominated three times for an Academy Award and nine times for an Emmy, and winner of four Golden Globes, has already won various other awards, albeit more modest ones, for her performance in this unassuming film.
Laurie plays Rose, a kindly old lady who has been living for fifty years in a charming house near a picturesque lake. Patti, her only child, is worried about her mother living alone. Together with her daughter Alison, Patti arrives for a weekend visit. An argument between mother and daughter and pictures from the very distant past bring up memories and expose secrets that Rose has kept from her family.
