Slipaway was a joyful surprise - I don't know of any film like it. The relationship between the older woman and the young man was so natural, and so nuanced, so authentic. Elaine Partnow is amazing in the role, and Jesse Pepe is perfect as her friend and confidante. The relationship with the family is natural too - annoyed, impatient with the difficulties of aging and loss of independence. Even the aging, courageous woman: so tough, so smart, so independent - she won't last forever. Bravo to the writers and to the directors, crew and actors for giving us such an important view into the future of all of us.
