"The vacation that Frankie and her extended family are taking together has its own melancholy vibe. She’s dying — with the delicate radiance that only a movie star can bring to the task — and has summoned a husband, an ex-husband, a son, a stepdaughter and a close friend to join her for a few days of somber recreation. All these people have troubles of their own, and those compete with Frankie’s slightly inscrutable moods." – A.O. Scott, The New York Times. Filmed on location in the historic Portuguese town of Sintra.
“A film that feels like a sumptuous beach read on a lazy sunny afternoon”
