A Little Movie with a Lot to Say

"I rented this movie after I saw a clip on a talk show with Shelley Winters as a guest, and I was not disappointed. "An Unremarkable Life" describes the life of Patricia Neal's character, an old maid who doesn't appear to have done very much, according to her sister, Shelley Winters. Shelley, on the other hand, was a married woman with a home and family. But Shelley's image of herself is shattered when she loses her home and her adult children have no place for her; she is forced to move in with the sister she has always lorded it over. To make matters worse, Patricia has a late-blooming romance with a Japanese gentleman who encourages her to do the one thing she has always wanted to do: take flying lessons. So as one sister's life appears to be on the wane after having had so much, the other picks up with a vengeance. Shelley Winters plays the bitter old widow excellently. She reminds me so much of a malcontent woman I used to know as a teenager--the characterization rings true. Here was another missed Oscar nomination. View it and you'll know I'm right."
An unremarkable movie

"Made in 1989 the struggle against racial prejudice stemming from WWII was a subject of discussion then. but it is not now an issue any more. We have made some progress........I remember Patricia Neal from "In Harms Way"and she is and was a wonderful actress. So is Shelley Winters. The film does not solve the problem of care for the aged which is an open wound in America.On the positive side the English spoken is clean and beautiful and I do not feel I wasted my time watching this movie. The story of two elderly sisters living more or less peacefully together,until one falls in love with an oriental mechanic, is beautifully told, and the characters are warm and believable.I liked it."
Two great stars!!!!!!!!!

"This a little gem of a movie. I bought it because of the two
stars in it, I did not know anything about the movie. I found it to be
very enjoyable. Patricia Neal does a superb job and Shelley Winters is
hard to beat in roles where she can be disagreeable.
These were two of Hollywoods great actresses!!!!!!!"
