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
This lovely film proves that you don't need millions of dollars to make a compelling movie, just a story and characters that the audience can invest in and care about.
For my taste, there are never enough films featuring a strong, complex woman in a leading role, let alone a woman over 50, and the marvelous Kathleen Chalfant gets to shine here, along with an outstanding supporting cast.
This film is equal parts funny and touching and was clearly made with tremendous care and passion, which is evident on the screen. Highly recommended!
