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
I saw this wonderful film at the San Antonio Film Festival. Isn't It Delicious is
one of those rare films that brings you face to face with the impermanence of this world. Watching Joan sweep up the remains of her broken relationships reminds us that the time to love our friends and family is now. The superb cast of Isn't It Delicious delivers this message with a laughing while crying dexterity that leaves you feeling the immediacy of the moment long after the credits have rolled. This deftly woven screenplay manages to address the topics of familial dysfunction and terminal illness in a way that uplifts rather than depresses. Well done! I've recommended this film to all my friends and family.
This is a definite "must see" movie.
