Storyline

When Joan Weldon discovers she is dying of lung cancer, she sets out to reconcile her dysfunctional relationships with her three children, her husband, and along the way, her former best friend. The family's destructive ways are offset by messy and somewhat humorous attempts by Joan to set her children on the right course before she dies. In this big dysfunctional mix, they will all learn to connect in their own ways, and realize on their own terms what life is about. Written by Anonymous

Flakey family deals with the inevitable in this gem
26 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

I saw the film in New York. It had lots of genuine humor, some moments of "Wow! I'm glad that never happened to me" and a sneakily-moving end. It's hard to love characters that are hard to love, but each had their humanity out for all to see.

While it's clear that the film was a modest one, the emotional content is the element on which no expense was spared. I was surprised by the emotional depth and quality performances that the producers and director managed to achieve in this small-budget gem.

It's clear the roots of the film were nourished deep in the pain and pleasure of life. I'm glad that the film showed the way that those two realities play off of one another. Great performance by Kathleen Chalfant!
