Creaking with metaphors, it is a lovely story to watch, with a knockout cast. We see different women from different generations, who tell about their lives in flashbacks - their love lives. In center of the film is Finn, played by Winona Ryder, who is not sure if she wants to marry her boyfriend. She visits her grandmother and all her friends, who are making a Quilt for her. Each woman brings her own perspective to the nature of love, from Anna (who signs off on men completely after a bad experience) to her daughter Marianne (who cannot settle on just one man). Some of the women have been cheated on, some have done the cheating, while others just let love die. In spite of the pains that the women have suffered in the name of love, the movie does not in any way bash love or marriage. A really nice film with many great moments.
Finn is a young graduate student, finishing a master’s thesis, and preparing for marriage to her fiance Sam. But thoughts of the end of the free life, and a potential summer fling, intrude. She goes home to her grandmother, where, over the making of her wedding gift by a group of quilting-bee friends, laughter, bickering, love, and advice lead her toward a more open-eyed examination of her course.
