A Cooler Climate A woman travels to coastal Maine after her divorce to start a job as housekeeper for a bitter, wealthy woman. They do not hit if off, but no one will work for the rich woman, and Field has no skills and needs the job. They each get involved in the other’s life and eventually learn to respect and even like one another. This is the story of the journey of two middle-aged women and how they learn to accept what life has to offer.
A Surprisingly Strong Movie
When I cut on Lifetime, I said, “Oh, well, just a Sally Field movie on.” However, as I became involved in the movie, I realized that the story was captivating–as was Sally Field. She remains very attractive, and she can stimulate a range of emotions in viewers.
The movie was not predictable, because there were several times I thought I knew the next step–but each time I was wrong. So the film moved well past soap opera status.
My only criticism: Her professional advancement seemed a bit too rapid. Other than that, I rate the story very highly, and rank her acting A plus.
A touching movie with romance and friendships.
