Trivia

The closing song in the film as Jane boards the train and leaving her husband Leonard is Jennifer Warnes singing "Famous Blue Raincoat" original written by Leonard Cohen. A line in the song goes: yes, and Jane came by with a lock of your hair she that you gave it to her. See more »

Quotes

Grandma Eves: You've got to make your own life, one that you love, and you can't be afraid of the time. Time is shiftable. There are moments of my life that I'd trade sixty years to have back again. That's the truth. You know the truth when you find it. It'll come to you like something you've known before rather than something you're learning for the first time.

And While We Were Here - brief
25 October 2014 | by user-142-632625See all my reviews

Troubled couple arrive in Naples and settle in. He to play viola for concerts, she to work on WWII novel / memoir. Gorgeous settings of isle of Ischia, offset by serious, depressing tone of a husband and wife who can no longer communicate with each other. She meets a 19 year old, still very boyish, reckless and full of youthful energy. He comes off as initially annoying, and I cannot say he grew on me, but I did get accustomed to him. The plot meanders around as the young wife (Kate Bosworth - quite good here) broods much of the time. Much of her story is internal, thinking and rethinking, about her situation and possibilities. All the time, she is listening to recordings of her grandmother, recalling her own youth. "Chick flick" might resonate more with female viewers.
