I liked this DVD. It has a happy ending. One of the main characters are an young aimless male who does not know what he wants from life. He feels it is difficult to meet and talk to others. He meets an older woman on a trip to Spain who he is comfortable to talk to. The relationship becomes physical. He declares love for her. He asked her to marry him. She tells him she has been diagnosed with a terminal illness. This does not deter his determination to be with her until she dies. That is loyalty. He likely fears loneliness. It is about love, pain and the whole damn thing. The script is strong. It is well acted. It is good for all ages. Sexual scenes are subtle enough for a younger audience. The story is slow moving. You may relate to the experience of the actors. I like Maggie Smith as an actress.
