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

Isn't It Delicious is a thoughtful film for Baby boomers (and others) dealing with family end-of-life issues, as well as family dysfunction - including addiction and co-dependence. But that doesn't mean the film is a downer. The dialogue is sharp and crackles with intelligence. The principal actors -- Kathleen Chalfant, Keir Dullea, and Alice Ripley, as well as sharp-as-a-tack Malachy McCourt -- all bring depth and understanding to their roles, and Jonah Young stands out as younger brother Teddy.

Although made on a shoestring, Delicious takes viewers on an emotional ride that quite a few more accomplished filmmakers seem unwilling to undertake. The director, MIchael Kelly, executive producer Alfred Caiola and producer Suzanne Hayes, have worked intelligently with the material to create a rich and satisfying film experience.
