Storyline

Upon moving into her husband's childhood home to help take care of his elderly relatives, Jean Copeland, an emotionally withdrawn wife and mother of two, becomes embroiled in an affair with a suicidal lover. Her husband, Gordon, is oblivious, too busy worrying that he's losing his most prized possession, his mind, after a run-in with an ex-girlfriend he doesn't remember. 19-year-old, Priscilla, is a fashionista desperate to become a reality TV star, while 9-year-old crossword fanatic, Otis, has fallen in love for the very first time. Otis (played by Noah schanpp) falls in love with Caterina (played by Caroline Mills) after, well, forever. With Gordon's father, Theodore, fading into dementia, and 95-year old matriarch, Vivian, desperately clinging to control of the house, the six family members, at five stages of life, distill the dreams, worries, and regrets, of contemporary America.

Depressive and Boring
27 February 2020 | by franklindfSee all my reviews

Drama that deals with multiple generations in a family who each struggle with their own predicaments. It's not that relatable because the broad focus means it doesn't target a particular audience. The mood through the film remains mostly lifeless and unhappy. I believe the film strives to carry some sort of overall message about the life experience. But it's hard to get inspired by the meandering and depressed plot. It's decently made and acted but the material just isn't compelling enough to suceed.
