In several interviews, Susan Walter explains how she originally wrote a coming of age comedy about a 25 year old woman. Because she wanted somebody tough and vibrant to play the mother, she sent the script to Sharon Stone. Sharon called her and said : "No, no, no. Don't make it a coming of age comedy about somebody in their twenties. Been there. Done that. Make it about a woman in her fifties and now you have something fresh. I'm not playing the mother...I'm playing the lead!" See more »
When I watched the preview I decided it would be worth a try and I'm glad I took the time. It is a rom-com with an all star, all mature cast. But it is about more than romantic love. In fact, it is mostly about the love of family and friends. It makes you think about what constitutes a full life. It is about sticking by the people in your life life even when they are messy and need different things. Romantic love is only a fraction of the experience. And that is the point. I recommended it to a couple of my friends and can't wait to talk to them about it.
