About this Article
Like the Academy Award-winning “Amour,” “Still Mine” is a love story in which the protagonists are, refreshingly, not hardbodied Hollywood hotties. The surprisingly moving but clear-eyed Canadian film about a couple in their 80s, stars James Cromwell and Genevieve Bujold as a long-married couple. Based on a true story, the film by writer-director Michael McGowan is structured around the efforts of Craig Morrison (Cromwell) to build a more manageable house for his increasingly forgetful wife, Irene (Bujold), after she falls and breaks her hip. But it winds up being something more.
