Funny, touching and uplifting
2 October 2018 | by kdevine4407See all my reviews

Nothing to Do strikes a delicate balance of humor and emotional depth in following two adult siblings as they face the death of their father. Mike Kravinsky brings to life relatable characters whose actions always ring true. The father is a great guy, but he's tired and ready to make that last transition. The brother is sweet, but his lack of ambition has caught up with him. The sister is determined and focused, but helpless to understand that there are just some things she cannot bend to her will, like the inevitability of death. We know these people, we have these people in our own families, we are these people.

As the Artistic Director for the Global Peace Film Festival located in Orlando, I am always looking for films that speak to human emotions and positive values while being compelling and entertaining. Nothing to Do delivers on all counts, and the film just might help make the world a better place by offering a gentle, understanding guide to dealing with a transition none of us can avoid.
