Enjoyable character study
4 January 2017 | by btm1See all my reviews

Very enjoyable and engrossing small film with a well thought out plot and interesting characters. Walter (Andrew J. West) is a young adult who lives an overly-obsessive ordered life. He also believes his father is God and his mission in life is to pass judgment on everyone he meets as to whether that person will go to heaven or hell in the afterlife. He lives at home with a widowed mother (Virginia Madsen) who has her own peculiar behavior pattern. She is unaware of Walter's beliefs but is distressed that Walter is not healthier.

Walter's life is abruptly disrupted by the sudden appearance of a ghost (Justin Kirk, who played Andy Botwin in the TV series "Weeds") who demands Walter send him to either heaven or hell already because he's been on earth as a ghost for 10 years now. Without giving the story away, I can say I felt the author very nicely tied everything together in the end.

Walter H. Macy plays a very unusual psychologist, whose personality is pretty similar to what Macy portrays on the US version of "Shameless."

Neve Campbell has a small but critical role as a nurse.

Jim Gaffigan does an excellent job as the theater manager who doesn't take his own job too seriously but is a good boss.

I watched the film on TV. Perhaps it works better in an intimate setting than in a theater, but I really found it engrossing, enjoyable and worthwhile.
