Don't miss this film
2 July 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

An excellent film about how different people cope with grief. It also shows the fallibility of memory over a long period. One character played by Joanne Whaley has the memory of a brutal mother who instead of supporting her when she becomes pregnant at 14 shouts at her and slaps her. This has festered over the years until she has reached the stage of hating her mother. But her memory is fickle and it is not until late on in the film when it is revealed what really happened.

An incredible experience and one that should not be missed, the scene where Julie Walters is starting to pack away her mother's clothes for the charity shop aided by her sisters is hilarious, and so true. People think that death is all about weeping and crying because that is the expected thing to do. It's not and my own personal experience tells me that.

The only thing I regret not happening is that one of the daughters didn't wipe the appalling makeup off their mother's corpse.
