None of these people are ideal; they're not people we would choose to know. They're all damaged in some way, carrying emotional baggage, telling lies, betraying a trust, pretending to be something that they are not. But, like all of us, they're desperately searching for the human connection that gives meaning to their lives - that makes living worthwhile. And for April, Frank and Bernice the story does have a warm, comforting, life-affirming ending. Hunt, Firth and Midler shine in their roles, and while there's little memorable dialog, the characters are very real. If you like low-key, conversation-laden, character-driven, comedy-dramas, films like As Good as It Gets, Smart People or The Upside of Anger, you will probably enjoy this film.
