With a cast of seven women (six of whom are non-actors), this is a sweet story of how they are thrown together in the middle of the countryside and get to know one another. Nice interactions and revelations of each of their lives. At first, I found it a little slow but as the dynamics unfold, these charmers win you over. If you enjoy the movie, don't forget to watch the extras where you can access bio info on each actor and also watch them discussing thoughts about doing the movie.

The acting was great, the plot was weak - boring.

one of the best movies I've ever seen, absolutely magical

An odd little Canadian film. A little bit about making do in a (somewhat) tough situation, a little bit about resilience, a little bit about relationships. Not much about anything, though.

What a gift they made this into a DVD! I found this movie in my 30s and loved Canada had the courage to trust is a cast of ladies. There is beauty in all ages, and the USA dying with his insistence on worshiping youth while refusing to grow up and grow old!
