Psychological, with laughter and many tears.
25 February 2002 | by dennis-35See all my reviews

This is a powerful psychological drama (at times). Here is a woman who has been trapped in a loveless marriage. Her husband loved his parakeet much more than her. She lived on almost no money, begging for grocery money, but getting a lecture. My heart bleeds for her, because I knew someone who lived like this.

Hubby dies. But his presence is still felt, over and over, by his widow. He left all of his money to someone else, only dribbling a paltry sum to her. She scrapes up enough money to take a bus trip to see the sights.

Suddenly, people seem to like her (a very difficult thing to handle). She makes friends, and begins to feel like a person, instead of just a useless appendage. Things are bumpy, but, little by little, she feels her strength.

I recommend this movie to anyone who thinks that life cannot ever change. Letting go of a painful past can allow a wonderful present ... the skies the limit.
