When Carol (Blythe Danner) seeks out new experiences with the help of friends (June Squibb, Rhea Perlman and Mary Kay Place), she unexpectedly finds romance (Sam Elliot).
I'll See You in My Dreams
Carol (Blythe Danner) finds the everyday activities that have given her life structure – her regular bridge game, gardening, a glass of wine or two – have lost their luster. With the help of her three quirky girlfriends (June Squibb, Rhea Perlman, and Mary Kay Place), Carol decides to seek out new experiences and find love in places she never expected. Also starring Sam Elliot and Martin Starr, this is a vibrant and heartfelt film that critics are calling “elegant, funny and entirely engaging!” – Associated Press

When I see it again, as I plan to, I may find a moment or two to quibble with. If I do, I suspect they will be very minor.

Avoids the obvious, delivering a bittersweet observational drama which pulls the heartstrings.

[Danner is] clearly having a ball with this character.

A touching, funny and thoughtful film that trades in honesty rather than artifice.

I'll See You in My Dreams is delicate and nuanced, with writing that rejects, or at least reshapes, the cliches of movies about people facing the glare of their sunset years.

The film cleverly uses the conventions more typical of romantic comedies several decades its junior ...

Danner is probably the main reason to see the movie, and her screen presence is impressive; she's an actor who manages to bring gravitas to any role, and that includes her work in goofy things like Ben Stiller's Meet the Parents series.

Haley allows Danner to be exquisite as Carol, never rushing while allowing the actress to explore every nuance of her character. We casually fall in step with her, grateful to be there.

"I'll See You in My Dreams" is at once funny and poignant - and not just for moviegoers of a certain age.

An admirable take on the winter of discontent that may arrive toward the end... Admirable for its refusal (mostly) to go for broad comedy or easy sentiment, for its matter-of-factness and willingness to take its time with each conversation and situation.

A nuanced lead performance by Blythe Danner anchors this better-than-average entry in the growing subgenre of light dramas about Baby Boomers learning to enjoy retirement.
5/21/2015 by Ty Burr
"I'll See You in My Dreams" may be the first movie since 1974's "Lovin' Molly" to put Danner at its center; the results are a minor revelation and a reminder of where the real acting talent in this family lies.

The film has a fresh tone and free-floating original storytelling. Nobody is as predictable as they first appear.
5/21/2015 by Stephanie Merry
The drama serves as a pleasant reminder that no matter how old we get, we never really become experts at life. And who would want to? The fumbling is often the most interesting part.
5/21/2015 by Bill Goodykoontz
"I'll See You in My Dreams" is a remarkably pleasant experience at the movies.
5/21/2015 by Michael Phillips
The actors are terrific. It's too bad, though, that co-writer, editor and director Brett Haley settles for so little.

There are three reasons to see I'll See You in My Dreams. Blythe Danner is Reason No. 1. She also happens to be Reasons Nos. 2 and 3.
San Francisco Chronicle

By keeping sentimentality out, "I'll See You in My Dreams" leaves space for real emotion.
5/20/2015 by Rex Reed
The tender magnetism of Blythe Danner turns an intelligent, sensitive story of love among the not so young into a work of art.
5/15/2015 by Joe McGovern
The breezy, tender moments between Blythe Danner and Sam Elliott, two great unsung troupers of American acting for 40 years, would make for a blissful short film.
