When Joan Weldon discovers she is dying of lung cancer, she sets out to reconcile her dysfunctional relationships with her three children, her husband, and along the way, her former best friend. The family's destructive ways are offset by messy and somewhat humorous attempts by Joan to set her children on the right course before she dies. In this big dysfunctional mix, they will all learn to connect in their own ways, and realize on their own terms what life is about.Written by
"Isn't It Delicious?" The answer is yes! The cast is led by the luminous Kathleen Chalfont who manages to create a character cantankerous and irritating and endearing at the same time. The film is not always easy to watch, as it should be when dealing with death and dying, but as also it sparkles also with humor, well, you laugh, you cry. Particularly amusing was the comic use of the theme from "2001: A Space Odyssey", presumably a tribute to the handsome and engaging Keir Dullea who plays Ms. Chalfont's long suffering husband. Kudos to director, Michael Patrick Kelly for his light touch and for what I understand is a husband and wife producing team of Mr. Kelly and Suzanne Hayes, who also has a delightful cameo as the fun and frothy lesbian side-kick to Ms. Chalfont's character's lesbian daughter. Here's to indie films!
