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

Heartwarming story about Alzheimer's
27 June 2013 | by (Pittsburgh PA USA) – See all my reviews

Almost heaven...the beauty of the West Virginia mountains and the Greenbrier River are the perfect backdrop for this pure love story. Polly or Nana as her grandson Jack calls her, loves her home and wants to stay there despite the beginning stages of Alzheimers. Jack loves his grandmother and has to face that her life is changing. Only someone who has walked the path with a family member with Alzheimers could have written a movie so infused with love, laughter, and tears and not make it a tragedy. Grandparents and grandchildren have a love story all their own and this movie is surely a testament to J.T.Arbogast's love for his grandmother. Arbogast brilliantly used the historic town of Cass WV to illuminate the story that confronts mainstream America on a daily basis. Excellent acting and surprises in the plot keep the story from becoming predictable. I would recommend this movie to everyone.
