What a tremendously sad movie. Ladies in Lavender creates two elderly female characters who react to the arrival of a beautiful young man. One reacts to him as a mother would, the other as something much different. This is a movie about regrets, loss and loneliness. This is a cautionary tale that asks the viewer to review decisions made in the present tense that can make the future tense. The performances are beautiful, of course, the story leaves one thinking afterwards. As credits you will probably want to think about what you've seen more than talk about it. I think I saw the movie in time ... I'll know in a few more years. Even so, I'll thank the cast and the scriptwriters now.
