DVD Release: I’ll See You in My Dreams

September 29, 2015

By John Corrado

I'll See You in My Dreams DVDToday, Elevation Pictures is releasing I’ll See You in My Dreams on DVD.  Carol Petersen (Blythe Danner) is a former singer still grieving the death of her husband, who has settled into a quiet routine on her own, including frequent bridge games with her trio of friends (June Squibb, Rhea Perlman and Mary Kay Place) at the local retirement home.

But through a budding friendship with her kindhearted pool cleaner Lloyd (Martin Starr), and a burgeoning relationship with the charming and retired Bill (Sam Elliott), she starts to find new perspectives on life.

Director Brett Haley has crafted a heartfelt and all around wonderful little film, with engaging characters brought to life through a uniformly excellent cast, and a beautifully written screenplay that includes moments of delightful humour.  This is a quiet, tender and touching drama about growing older and finding new connections, built around a moving performance from Blythe Danner, who shines in one of the finest roles of her career.

The DVD also includes a brief promotional featurette on the film.

I’ll See You in My Dreams is 97 minutes and rated PG.
