When a sexagenarian seamstress begins an unexpected affair with a 76-year-old client, they slowly find themselves falling in love with each other, despite the fact that she still loves her husband of thirty-odd years, which leads her to make some difficult decisions, in Dresen’s raw and unflinchingly naturalistic drama, which features a trio of brave performances.
