    Saw a sneak of this last night here in San Francisco and I had my hopes up but ovrall it was one big letdown.
    Great cast but characters went undeveloped, the movie took place in the 50s but Roberts seemed straight out of the 2000s and the male characters were sketchy at best.
    It tried to be a Dead Poets Society but failed miserably. It came up contrived and badly written.

    This is one to catch on DVD where you luckily only have to waste a few bucks.

    I expected it be overwhelmingly maudlin and manipulative...yet was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't all that bad!

    It's not a new story at all, but I did like it for the historical aspect of it ("Did women really have to DEAL with stuff like this? Yes they did!") and if you're gonna do a "Dead Poetess' Society" - at least hire some solid actors and a strong director. Which they did.

    3 (or maybe 3.5) out of 5 for me
