dc.description.abstractBette Davis and Lillian Gish. Two of Hollywood s longest-reigning leading ladies. Each a legend in her own time. Now, after careers that span the history of cinema, they re together on the screen for the first time in director Lindsay Anderson s (If, Oh, Lucky Man) critically acclaimed masterpiece, The Whales of August. In virtuoso performances, Ms. Davis (two-time Academy Award Winner) and Ms. Gish (First Lady of the American Cinema) play two elderly sisters, one contrary and cantankerous, the other patient and kind. After having spent sixty summers on a Maine island together, they must finally decide whether to give up their family home, independence and life together. A sentimental, engaging story, The Whales of August features a distinguished supporting cast including two, equally-gifted veterans, Vincent Price and Ann Sothern. A Story of survival, hope and triumph, The Whales of August proves one adage above all. You really are never too old to see things anew. A story of the complexities of growing old, and the responsibility that comes with it. [description taken from cassette box]en
