MANY BOOMERS CAN RELATE
10 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

Expecting a sob fest, I went to this film armed with a purse full of tissues...it turned out I didn't need them. (Well, maybe one.) The issue of what to do about an aging parent, something many baby boomers are facing, was handled superbly. The necessary seriousness of the situation, was mixed with just enough humor to keep this view engaged the entire time. This was a well-scripted, well-acted film. Everything from the script, to the score, to the camera shots, and everything in between, was outstanding. I hope that this film goes in to a wide distribution, I think that it might bring some comfort to those facing a similar situation.
