This film marks the end of an era for 3 of the main actors in this film, although Bette Davis did appear in one more film this was apparently her last film that she was to complete. This was to be the last film that both Lillian Gish, who looked great for for her age (92/93 at the time) and Ann Southern who was 78 at the time and also looked great for her age.
There's also fine support from Vincent Price.
This is primarily about 2 elderly sisters (Bette and Lillian) who are both coming to the end of their long lives, they are both widows who have lived at their seaside cottage for the past 50 years, whilst one sister wants to embrace new and exciting things in life, the other is bitter and unwilling to embrace change.
Over the course of the film they begin to get closer to eachother and embrace their lives together, for now and the future.
This is a film with a good and strong heart, it's warm and easy going and is a joy to watch a group of legendary actors doing what they always did best, the last few shots in particular are very subtle and moving, as the screen fades to black so too do the two main characters long and successful careers and their lives.
