EVENING is adapted by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Cunningham (The Hours) from the best-selling novel by Susan Minot. It is a moving, romantic and poignant drama boasting one of the strongest female casts assembled in recent times; Glenn Close, Toni Collette, Claire Danes, Vanessa Redgrave, Natasha Richardson and Meryl Streep. The film explores the romantic past and emotional present of Ann Grant (Vanessa Redgrave) and her daughters. As Ann lays dying, she reflects on the time in her youth when she met the love of her life, a man she has never forgotten. Incredibly romantic and deeply moving, EVENING is a film about the moments in life that defines ones future. It is about decisions made at an impulse that effect a lifetime, and most of all it is about true love and knowing when it finds you. The film has echoes of classics such as The Bridges of Madison County and The Notebook with more than a passing nod to The Way We Were.
