so many goofed up families
12 May 2015 | by ksf-2See all my reviews

Dorothy Lyman directs and stars in this collection of stories of a harder life in New England. We see overlapping lives and connections in this story written by Nancy Fales-Garrett. We watch an LGBT couple, the family of a soldier returned from war in Iraq, various spouses, sons, daughters, siblings, and they all see the meteor shower. Lots of yelling, typical of any family I guess. It opens with the narrator telling us about the horse she had to put down when it got sick. A little odd, but it does forewarn us about the stories of weirdness and hardships still to come. Everyone is a little off their rocker, and the moms and wives aren't sure how to deal with that. I get the feeling that one or more of these stories are the writer's own experience, but it's a little convoluted, since there are so many conflicts and story lines going on here. The acting is all pretty good; actually, it's really good. it's the script that needs tightening up. An entertaining 108 minutes. Some dark stuff in here, but interesting to watch. i'm surprised that it has such a low rating as of today, but it IS based on only 30 votes. Definitely NOT for the kiddies.
