Deeply moving and incredibly romantic, Evening is a film about the moments in life that define us, and the timeless love that binds mothers and daughters, sisters and friends. The film explores the romantic past and emotional present of 65 year-old Ann Lord (Vanessa Redgrave), told in two parallel stories.
Based on the beloved novel by Susan Minot and adapted for the screen by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Cunningham (The Hours), Evening boasts one of the strongest female casts assembled in recent times, to include Claire Danes, Toni Collette, Vanessa Redgrave, Glenn Close, Natasha Richardson and Meryl Streep.
Evening is a wonderful, exhilarating and poignant film of spellbinding power on the nature of memory and love. A timeless and stirring story about the secrets we share, the choices we make and the people who fill our lives.
