“Evening” was a beautifully written film with seamless transitions between the 1950’s and present as a woman on her deathbed remembers and examines her complicated love life of years ago. While the language in the film clearly prevents it from receiving the Dove Family-Approved Seal, it was an emotionally moving story with an excellent cast. I expected to see a romantic love story and while the film did contain one, it was explored through the eyes of best girlfriends and, as a viewer, I found myself interested more in the relationship between the two female friends rather than the handsome doctor and leading lady. It isn’t the typical “chick flick” but rather a realistic portrayal of family and friendship. As I left I couldn’t help but wonder what stories my own grandmother and mother have locked away in their hearts.
