4.0 out of 5 stars Life Together
'Cloudburst' is a film about love. Told in a round about manner, that is what it all boils down to. Olympia Dukakis plays Stella, a masculine Stella to Brenda Fritch's, Dot. They have been living in rural Maine together for 31 years All of this time they have never admitted to being Lesbians to the public, only to themselves. They have lived a good life, and seem to be...

This review is from: Cloudburst [DVD] [2011] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
'Cloudburst' is a film about love. Told in a round about manner, that is what it all boils down to. Olympia Dukakis plays Stella, a masculine Stella to Brenda Fritch's, Dot. They have been living in rural Maine together for 31 years All of this time they have never admitted to being Lesbians to the public, only to themselves. They have lived a good life, and seem to be very happy. The one day Dot fell, her granddaughter decided it was time for her to go to a nursing home. Dot, is blind and signed papers that gave her granddaughter power of attorney. Thus Dot went into a nursing home, leaving Stella fighting mad.

Stella took revenge and in the middle of the night kidnapped Dot and off they went to Canada. Along the way they pick up a hitchhiker, a young man. Their adventures should be seen to be believed. Some of the film turns maudlin and goes on too long, but the message is there. There is a lot of humor, blue language from Stella, and life abounds. This role is quite an adventure for Olivia Dukakis, she really turns it on, and is quite believable. The four letter words just roll her tongue. Brenda Fricker is a joy, quite the opposite, demure and sweet. The young man somehow seems to fit in, though the film could have been fine without him. What he introduces is a strange meeting with his family and some tales of his life as a stripper.

All in all, the film was quite good, lots of good humor, not for the faint of heart, and not for anyone who has preconceived notions.

Beautiful portrayal of devotion. The language is very strong, but delivered in context and with humour. A tale that proves love is not for just the young.

Words cannot express how fantastic this film is. Its funny and lovely and just as u fall in love with the two main characters, your left crying your eyes out at the end. I would encourage anyone to watch it whether your a lesbian, straight, gay or bi, this fantastic love story will teach you a thing or to.

This was a comedy with an underlying message that families do not always understand their parents life choices.
I have only given it 4 stars stars because I was disappointed that yet again there was a sad ending. Frankly I am sick of sad endings.
Otherwise a very entertaining movie.

Loved the story, loved the acting. Laughed out loud in a lot of places, cried in others. A beautiful combination of irreverence and pathos. Beautiful.
