Editor's Note
Michael Cunningham (author of THE HOURS) lends his screenwriting skills to Lajos Koltai's EVENING. This time, Cunningham adapts a book by Susan Minot for the big screen. Vanessa Redgrave plays Ann Grant, who in her last hours retells the highlights of her life to an audience made up of her daughters, with Claire Danes playing a younger version of the protagonist.

Expert Review Evening - DVD Review
By: Jarad I. Wilk Cinema Blend DVD Reviews
Published on: 9/29/2007 11:23 AM
Evening proves that not every Susan Minot novel is destined for the big screen, no matter how touching the story can be, or how well-acted it is on screen. It tries to be The Hours, another movie based on a Minot novel, but it only accomplishes that with another ensemble cast of exceptional actresses, and the fact that the movie is hours long (it's only two hours long, but trust me, it feels longer). ...read the full review

"Redgrave puts in a heartfelt performance..." 10/01/2007 p.54

ReelViews 8 of 10
Evening, based on the 1998 bestseller by Susan Minot, is an example of a well-told familiar story. There are no surprises during the course of the film, which transpires across two time frames (1954 and 1998), but the strength of the screenplay and acting provide a satisfying, although not overwhelming, two hours of romance, drama, and tragedy...Similarities to The Notebook are worth remarking upon, since this is designed for the same audience. Both involve contemporary characters looking back on experiences during which they meet the loves of their lives. The Notebook is a more of a tearjerker and a melodrama. Evening possesses a quiet dignity. The film is sad, but its approach is low key and it doesn't resort to the shameless manipulation that marred The Notebook's final act. There are no surprises. We know exactly how this is going to end, both in 1954 (because we're told so at the outset) and in 1998 (because there's no other way the movie can conclude), yet the fulfillment of expectations does not dilute the movie's emotional effectiveness. - James Berardinelli

Reel.com 7 of 10
A scattering of lovely, elegiac moments hint at what Evening might have been, if director Lajos Koltaj and novelist/screenwriter Michael Cunningham had resisted the urge to transform Susan Minot's introspective and circumspect novel into a glossy, highbrow soap opera. All too often weighted down with ponderous self-importance, this cinematic equivalent of a memory play is only fitfully compelling, despite the Herculean efforts by a glittering roster of stage and screen luminaries. Whereas Minot's 1999 novel earned the author favorable comparisons to Henry James for its subtlety and nuance, the screen version of Evening unfortunately veers closer in tone to the overwrought emotionalism of '50s-era playwright William Inge (Picnic)...Although nothing of much dramatic import happens, it's still a treat to watch Streep and Redgrave share the screen for the first time. Gummer (Streep's daughter) and Eileen Atkins (playing Ann's night nurse) also do splendid work, but it's Danes, radiant with intelligence, warmth and common sense, who captures your heart. Sadly, the same cannot be said of Evening. - Tim Knight
