In actuality, this is a most unusual film, in its sweet flow of seeming innocence through about 2/3, growing to deep feeling, with foreshadowing throughout growing, of some impending problem, then sudden impact of it turning, wham!, the clarity of reality, and the deep love being even more underlying and solid. One hates to give away endings that change a film, so forewarning, spoiler details follow = The reality involves Alzheimer's or dementia [though unnamed in the film], and it is this disease that has allowed for such an innocence to be real in its presentation, and explains prior actions that Mary took, the daughter and Mike took, with greater clarity of meaning at the point we come to realize it.

This is truly a true love story.
