Scarlett Alice Johnson,
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
Fantastic Direction & Acting! Very moving & funny!
I loved this movie! I was laughing & crying all the way through. The story itself was so original and refreshingly honest. Very different. I was blown away by the acting. The cinematography was just gorgeous. Kathleen Chalfant is not only one of the most physically beautiful woman to ever walk the face of the earth, but also one of the most mesmerizing, transcendent actors I have ever seen. I have always enjoyed watching her on stage, so to get to see her on film was such a treat. That said, the whole ensemble was crazy good! Even the smaller roles were stacked deep. For instance, Suzanne Hayes was hysterically funny, & totally right on the money, so authentic. The authenticity in this film was poignant. Wonderful wonderful movie! Director Michael Patrick Kelly is one of the best. What a masterpiece he created with his producer wife, Suzanne Hayes. I've seen some of their documentary work, which is also incredible and makes them the cream of the crop. It is inspiring to see a husband/wife (Suzanne Hayes produced) team collaborate all through both of their lives & continue to take risks and raise the bar for this art form!
