This drama centers around Walter who is newly-widowed, very depressed, and socially isolated. Jenkins captures his hopelessness well, but Walter is basically a very boring character. Jenkins was nominated for Best Actor, but I thought he showed no range of emotion at all. I didn't like Walter or care about him, nor did I have any empathy for the young couple in his apartment. All of the dialogue is delivered with unremitting melancholy and in such monotonous tones that I spent most of my time watching the clock, which never seemed to move.
The movie is tiresome and preachy and, worst of all, dull. Not recommended.
