Jessica Tandy and Bridget Fonda in Camilla.

It’s a bit like Thelma and Ole Louise: A retired violinist (Jessica Tandy) decides to head to Toronto to take care of some personal business that she has left unattended for too long, and decides to take her young tenant () along with her. The adventures they encounter on the road towards their goal makes up the bulk of this breezily enjoyable female bonding movie, one that features too many cliches, but enough genuine moments to be endearing as well.
