Collette and Richardson play the daughters of elderly, dying Ann (Redgrave), whose deathbed murmurs prompt a series of flashbacks to her youth in the 1950s (played by Danes) where we begin to see parallels between Ann's life and those of her daughters. Handsomely mounted and nicely performed, the film feels a bit forced, its lessons a tad obvious. Perhaps a case of too much talent trying too hard.
