Happy Tears (2010)
Directors:
Mitchell Lichtenstein
MPAA Rating:
R
Jayne (Parker Posey) and Laura (Demi Moore) are about to take on the first man they just might not be able to handle: their seventy something-year-old father Joe (Rip Torn). Dutiful daughters returning to the house they grew up in, Jayne and Laura are forced to take a closer look at their own not-so-perfect lives while dodging childhood memories. Laura suspects that Joe needs full-time care, but Jayne refuses to believe that their father's condition is that serious. Jayne's compulsion to escape reality only increases Laura's attempts to yank her back down to earth. Meanwhile, Joe still sings and plays the blues on his prized guitar, and the lively widower even has a new ladyfriend, shameless and sassy Shelly (Ellen Barkin). But as the visible moments of their father's impending senility increase, the family dynamics spiral out of control. read more Tensions flare as the close sisters must also juggle their own very different lives Laura's busy environmentalist work schedule and mother of three small children, and Jayne, desperate to finally have a baby with her workaholic art-dealing husband Jackson (Christian Camargo). Their adventures back home are not without magic, mischief and mayhem, and even a search for buried treasure in the backyard! In the end, any tears that Jayne and Laura might shed will be happy ones.
