From the name I had no clue what the movie was about, let alone what it would be like.
But it was surprisingly different, and refreshing.
The movie touches upon several serious topics - racialism, old age, friendship, mother-son relationship; and yet it makes you smile, and even laugh occasionally :)
Jessica Tandy got the 'Best Actress' Academy award for the movie, and is the oldest ever to win the same, and so deserving! Despite her irritable role in the film, she is an utter delight to watch.
