Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
The lives of widowed yentas is unusual subject matter for a film by African-American Bill Duke, who made his name as a character actor specializing in seedy villains, and whose previous directorial efforts (such as A Rage in Harlem) had focused on urban black America. Whatever the logic behind it, The Cemetery Club works pretty well as a romantic dramedy for the older set, with laughs offsetting tears in the usual ways. Its limited appeal to important demographics left the film without much of an audience, but it does gather a handful of the top actresses of their age group (Olympia Dukakis, Diane Ladd, Ellen Burstyn) as well as Danny Aiello playing his usual brusque but goodhearted character. The result is a predictable but reasonably satisfying consideration of whether to remain slavishly devoted to the past or strive for future enjoyment. The sputtering romantic lives of elder women makes for refreshing subject matter; such characters rarely take center stage in mainstream film, and when they do, it's often as cheery fountains of wisdom who seem impervious to their twilight loneliness. Dukakis' and Burstyn's characters initially view the flirtatious Ladd as an undignified embarrassment, making them complicit with society's discomfort about women with wrinkles continuing to pursue a sex life. The characters' varying reactions to their sudden eligibility delineates them as firm and familiar personality types, and gives The Cemetery Club dimension beyond its standard components.
