Saturday Night at the Movies #119 – Still Mine

Filed under: Movie reviews — Mike Kueber @ 8:20 am

Still Mine (2013) is a low-budget Canadian movie about the integrity of a rural 87-year-old man (James Cromwell). His integrity first is displayed favorably in the way he deals with the mental and physical decline of his wife of 61 years (Genevieve Bujold), and then is displayed unfavorably when he attempts to build by hand a new, smaller house for his wife and encounters government bureaucrats who insist that the building must be built to code specifications. The low affair of this old couple makes the movie great, and the punctilious, supercilious bureaucrats are unable to spoil the matter.

The Rotten Tomato critics love the movie at 93% and the audience is almost as favorable at 85%. I agree with the critics and give it four out of four stars.
