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
This movie made me laugh way more than cry, which is precisely what we all need to do in today's world.
The cast is extraordinary--all the women are beautiful. Extraordinary filmmaking, with attention to lots of details. The script is stellar. The story moved me.
I applaud this marvelous work. It certainly takes lots of talented people to make such a film. Among the special touches are an homage to 2001: A Space Odyssey and many other unexpected twists and turns.
I recommend others treat themselves for a satisfying film experience. You'll be glad you did.
