This 1987 film is truly remarkable in its own small way. The filmcenters on a beautiful and simple story about the bonds of sisters, thedisappointments of life, and the waning days of one last summer on thecoast of Maine.The legendary, and I mean LEGENDARY, Lillian Gish stars here at age 93as Sarah....
I'm 22 years old and yet this movie about two elderly sisters and theirfriends touched my heart deeply.I must admit before I begin that I am a fan of Bette Davis and VincentPrice, and that Miss Lillian Gish is my all time favorite actress, so myview of this film may be skewed. However, I must admit ...
This is a delightful piece set on the magnificent shores of NewEngland's Atlantic Ocean, with an absolutely unrepeatable cast.Starring not only Bette Davis and Lilian Gish, alone worth anybody'smoney, well advanced into the autumn of their years, but also a verywelcome Vincent Price, and a magnifice...
Lindsay Anderson's The Whales of August stars silent film legend LillianGish, in her 95th year, and Bette Davis, 79, as widowed sisters, one warmand supportive, the other cold and cantankerous, who have been coming to asmall cottage on the Maine seacoast for sixty years. Every August, theywatch the ...
Until tonight, I had not seen this charming film since it was firstreleased in 1987--at that time I was 30. Now I'm quite a few yearsolder [you do the math--:)]. . .I'm not easily brought to tears, not atweddings, not at funerals, not by sad movies. But the beauty of thefinal moments with the Misses...
Elegantly tasteful inter-personal story about 2 elderly sisters -- played byGish and Davis, the all-time queens of the screen -- who are haunted by thepast and unsure of the future. One sister, the elder (Davis) is literallyblind -- an attribute she claims is intentional: "I'm working on my ears,no...
I will attempt to be as impartial as possible in my review, but right fromthe outset, I do believe that the flaw in this magnificently presented‘tribute' is not in the actresses (as most commentary' seem to be intent –particularly on Davis), but in the film itself.Libby (Davis) provides wi...
I don't know exactly how many years of movies Davis, Gish,Carrey, Sother and Price had together. Probably 300 !Butall of them are absolutely wonderful in this beautifulquietfilm about two aging sisters. Being a fan of Lillian Gish,I was amazed to see her full of gentle emotions, like inthefilms sh...
This was the last film of Lillian Gish and it has to be the most gracefulexit an actor or actress has ever had. All screen legends should have thedignity of their last film being this touching. This story is about twoelderly sisters who are staying in their family cottage on the coast ofMaine. Lilli...
This movie has two possible effects. You will be bored or charmed. Iwas charmed by the simple beauty of watching aged movie stars in their finalfilm roles. Ann Sothern is truly the high point in the movie and still hasher "Maisie-like" (the character she made famous in the 30's and 40's) wit...
This movie is very slight and quiet and beautiful. There is some of thebest cinematography you've ever seen, as the Maine coastline is used to fulladvantage and you can smell the sea breezes. In a movie like this, youappreciate it even more, because the characters keep talking about what abeautifu...
Definitely not one for the Multiplexes this has Art House written allover it and it's all the better for it. There's a definite Checkovian'feel' to this one, albeit minor Checkov, with five characters doingnothing much except give a Master Class in Screen Acting. If youactively look for such things ...
This is a very gentle story that follows its own path rather than beingscripted. Even though the actors are getting on in years they still havethat magic spark that captures your imagination. Bette Davis and VincentPrice are the two actors that do that but it really is Lillian Gish thatsteels the sh...
I saw this movie twice (and will certainly watch it again), it is a sada pure story that still leaves feeling that life is always beautiful.Lillian Gish as Sarah reminded me of one of my grandmother's friends.In some episodes it seemed like she hadn't even changed since her youngyears (only some wri...
Sensitive and compassionate little movie about the last days of live oftwosenior sisters (superbly played by Davis and Gish) in their house inMaine.The story is simple, almost casual and the dialogues are a bit too shallowbut sincere. Anyway, the chance of watch two great actress, in fact, morethan ...
The Whales of August follow the events of just more than a day in the lifeof two sisters, Sarah (Lillian Gish) and Libby (Bette Davis). As Sarahfollows her daily chores, from gardening to painting to preparing tea forvisitors, you get a strong sense of rhythm and simplicity that is almosthypnotic. L...
A quiet film about what will probably be the last summer for twosisters on an island in Maine. All the principal actors give greatperformances in what was, for most, their final role. Gish plays theoptimistic sister who has been widowed for 40 years against Davis'blind and pessimistic sister who rec...
Patient, kind Lillian Gish (as Sarah Webber) and contrary, cantankerousBette Davis (as Libby Strong) are two aging sisters; who spend what islikely to be their last summer together, arguing about their limitedfuture. Ms. Gish wants to have a "picture window" built for the house;but, the blind Ms. Da...
I'm still trying to figure out why I enjoyed "The Whales of August"(1987) as much as I did. It doesn't have much in the way of plot,story, action or even character development going for it, and takes itssweet time telling what little story there is. I suppose the movie'sappeal must lie in its once-i...
Directed by Lindsay Anderson, famous for his trilogy of films withMalcolm McDowell, this is a very different sort of movie, mostly due toa lack of unconventionality. The film has little in the way of plot,and the action that occurs is hardly anything out of the ordinary. Yet,it is the acting that th...
I really liked this movie but could see most people being very bored byit as well. This is because I particularly drawn to this movie by itscast because I am a MAJOR old movie buff. The thought of seeing LillianGish, Bette Davis, Vincent Price, Ann Sothern and Harry Carey, Jr.again after all these y...
This film is a warm and thoughtful study of ageing. All the performancesseem very fine to me. Lillian Gish has a remarkable range of expressions -her portrayal has both depth and truth. The photography is beautiful andthemusic is sensitive and responsive to the images....
Two Sisters, One Family House in Maine, One day in August, Summer isending,and so are the lives of the Sisters and their summers at thehouse.This is a great movie, Bette Davis and Lillian Gish, to have seen them intheir early films, and see them in this movie, time may have taken theiryouth, but tim...
This charming and thoroughly enjoyable film features a magnificent castheaded by screen legends Bette Davis and Lillian Gish. Davis and Gish aretwo sisters as different as night and day sharing a cozy little house offthe coast of Maine. Gish is the pleasant and considerate one, while Davis isthe dom...
