Storyline

The Hollywood Memorial Park cemetery was run down and bankrupt. Tyler Cassity, a young visionary from St. Louis, bought it for a song. Not only did he renovate the cemetery (the burial place of many of Hollywood's most famous actors and filmmakers), he is in the process of remaking the whole funeral industry, by focusing on the memorial aspects, producing documentaries of the lives of even ordinary people. The hip but respectful and caring approach is in vivid contrast to the traditional funeral business, represented here by Forest Lawn. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Why can't cemeteries be more like parks
21 November 2004 | by americanitaSee all my reviews

I enjoyed the film. When I was a child I loved watching old movies and listening to grownups retell events of their lives. My favorite past time was watching old movies. I am not much of a silent movie fan, but I did get to see Gene Wilder's rendition of Valentino and there was a movie in the seventies about his life. I didn't know there is still so much fascination about "The world's greatest Lover". The film also depicted how being so close to death makes you realize how important it is to live and cherish those you love.

I grew up in a small town in Ohio. I used to go to the cemetery with my friends for bike rides. We had an incredible cemetery. There were no fences to keep people out. It had lots of trees and winding roads. In the Dominican Republic the cemeteries look like a town with tiny houses. As I drive by cemeteries today, there is hardly any shade trees, and they are surrounded by a fence. I'd like to be buried under a shady tree with a view of a fountain or something nice.

The cemetery in the film seems like a very nice place. One that does not seem forgotten.
