"Alternatively comic and tragic and best when its both at once, Dina humanizes a world of people who were only dehumanized because we allowed them to be."
"the rapport between the filmmakers and their principal characters is so comfortable, it occasionally feels as if we are watching a scripted film."
"Although there may be no fairy-tale endings, by the movie's end it's impossible not to wish one for Dina and Scott."

Dina's getting married in a few weeks and there's still so much to do. She has to move her boyfriend, Scott, from his parents' house to her apartment, and settle him in to only the second home he's ever had, all while juggling his schedule as an early morning Walmart door greeter. She has to get her dress, confirm arrangements with the venue, and make peace with her family, who remain nervous for their beloved Dina after the death of her first husband and the string of troubled relationships that followed.
Throughout it all, in the face of obstacles large and small, Dina remains indomitable. She's overcome tragedy and found the man she wants and, at age 48, is bent on building the life for herself that she believes she deserves. Dina is unstoppable, a force of nature, and as the star of her own life story, she's an unconventional movie protagonist the likes of which hasn't been seen before.
