The Whales Of August
Original Release Date: Oct 16, 1987
Two of the greatest motion picture actresses of all time, Bette Davis and Lillian Gish, unite their legendary talents in this beautifully photographed, intensely emotional drama that offers unexpected and quite marvelous rewards (The New York Times)!
Libby (Davis) and Sarah (Gish) are widowed siblings who have vacationed for half a century at a seaside cottage in Maine. Now intheir eighties, the sisters have unexpectedly arrived at an impasse: While Sarah embraces change and the possibility of romance with a courtly Russian suitor (Vincent Price), the stubbornly bitter Libby rages at the inevitability of death. As the summer months wane, can Libby and Sarah rediscover the powerful bonds of memory, family and love?
