In the latest installment of "What to Watch", IMDb's TV Editor Melanie McFarland chats with "Mad Men" stars Jon Hamm, January Jones, John Slattery, and series creator Matthew Weiner about the drama's extraordinary legacy, as AMC prepares to air its final seven episodes.
We live in an era of sound bites. If you were to weigh the decision to view this film on the sound bite "triathlete, mother of five, fatally injured while training for the Ironman competition", you might opt to take a pass, and it would be your loss.
Documentarian Erin Flannery does the almost impossible: by her masterful ability to focus on one crucial aspect of this extraordinary and accomplished athlete - her competitive drive - she forces us to suspend our sadness on Judy's tragic death. Instead we are swept up into Judy's full embrace of life in her family, neighbors, volunteer work, and the triathlon, where she most definitely hit her stride. As has Erin, Judy's filmmaker daughter.
