Storyline

In her debut feature film, writer/director Angela Garcia Combs spins a dark and funny tale of an ambitious young woman at a crucial turning point in her career and her relationship with her bi-polar mother. Louise (Julia Garcia Combs) is an insurance underwriter living in Los Angeles with her mother, May (Karen Black), who has recently been evicted from her Section 8 apartment after the building was condemned. May's shaky grip on reality begins to loosen when she becomes aware of the close relationship between Louise and her trailblazing boss, Catherine (Barbara Bain), whom Louise admires and adores. Catherine is secretly fighting cancer and has an estranged relationship with her own daughter, and reaches out to Louise as a surrogate. At the same time, Catherine is pushing Louise to accept a big promotion, which will compel Louise to relocate to New York.

Nothing special indeed
23 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Terribly filmed, weakly acted, lamely written, and wretchedly scored. There might be something to the subject of a daughter dealing with her mentally ill mother, but the theme of elderly ladies seems to drag the film-making back in time too. Slow-paced, slow-witted, and silly, the only entertainment is provided by the antics of a dumb hunk, a little dog, a spunky mother, and "feminist" discussions that were stale 30 years ago. Either this is some parody that has fallen flat or Combs is so proud of being a "mature" woman that she has become a parody of her own grandmother. Some of the supporting characters do a decent job, the highlight for me was a bored receptionist, that is how banal this movie is.
