A STORY TOLD WITH COMPASSION AND HUMOR
15 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

This film does a fantastic job of representing the real world and the problem of aging parents that many of us face and will have to face. Several of our attendees at the Beaufort International Film Festival could identify with this situation because they are currently experiencing it. Those same attendees said it was their favorite screening! The sibling rivalry is apparent in the film and examples are touched on, but does not overshadow the real issue at hand. The seriousness of the film, with a bit of humor thrown in, make a desolate situation seem better and kept the script moving at a good pace. The brother, Kenny (Paul Fahrenkopf), and the sister, Rachel (Connie Bowman), did an outstanding job of allowing the audience to identify with each one regardless of your position or opinion on the subject. Wishing this film much success on the film festival circuit and beyond! Thank you for screening @bftfilmfest.
