Su­san Saran­don’s best role in years…

Writer-di­rec­tor Lorene Sca­faria’s own mother was the in­spi­ra­tion for this en­ter­tain­ing com­edy-drama star­ring a won­der­ful Su­san Saran­don. Her newly wid­owed char­ac­ter has set up home near her un­mar­ried screen­writer daugh­ter (Rose Byrne) and bom­bards her with phone calls, texts and un­so­licited dat­ing ad­vice. But the busy­body­ing springs from a warm-hearted na­ture, and Saran­don gives us an up­lift­ing, un­cloy­ing por­trayal of good­ness.

Dir: Lorene Sca­faria 2015, 12, 120min
