Storyline

Angel's Perch is the story of Jack, a successful architect living in Pittsburgh, who must make the trip to his tiny hometown when his grandmother Polly, who is suffering from Alzheimer's, is found wandering outside her house one morning. But what was intended to be a two day, under the radar trip to town becomes more complicated when Jack is unable to move Polly into an assisted living facility. Torn between the career opportunity of a lifetime, caring for his last living relative and running from his own painful memories, Jack's carefully constructed life begins to unravel. As the town prepares to honor Polly's life by crowning her "Queen of Cass" and the pressure to return to Pittsburgh mounts, Jack struggles to hide behind the walls he has built. And when he finally reveals his secret to an old childhood friend, he is forced to choose between standing still or facing the pain of his past, so that he can finally move forward. Set almost entirely in the small, historic logging town ... Written by Anonymous

Excellent movie!
27 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Saw "Angels' Perch" at the cinema last evening after following the production and filming online for months. It was set and filmed in Cass, WV, with a few scenes in Pittsburgh.

The theater was full and one heard sniffles and belly laughs both, during the showing. Gathering in the lobby of the theater after, it was obvious that we didn't want the experience to end.

I'll only give you the story line set-up: Jack is making a name for himself as an architect in Pgh, PA. Nana, his devoted grandmother, lives alone in Cass, WV where Jack grew up, and is beginning to show symptoms of Alzheimer's disease. Jack returns to Cass to make arrangements for Nana's care, with a make or break project presentation due in Pgh in one week.

You'll have to see it yourself for...the rest of the story. What you will see and feel is the true personality of West Virginia and her people captured in this film. There are no caricatured hillbillies, no "Deliverance" types or mudding' scenes....just real people and some of the characters were played by real residents in and around Cass. Don't miss it! Ask your local theater for a showing. You will not be sorry! Excellent movie!

Thank you for this story, JT Arbogast!
