In this vibrant, funny, and heartfelt film, a widow and former songstress discovers that life can begin anew at any age. After the death of her beloved dog, Carol finds the everyday activities that have given her life structure - her regular bridge game, gardening, a glass of wine or two - have lost their luster. With the support of three loyal girlfriends, Carol decides to embrace the world, embarking on an unlikely friendship with her pool maintenance man, pursuing a new love interest, and reconnecting with her daughter.

"A modest, quietly touching portrait of an older woman radiantly embodied by Blythe Danner."
- Stephen Holden, New York Times
"Blythe Danner knocks it out of the park as a widow whose lonely life is transformed by the death of her dog in Brett Haley’s disarming comedy-drama."
- Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"It tells a story that’s been largely ignored but will no doubt resonate with retirees who feel like they’ve lost their purpose."
