In his first narrative feature-length co-executive produced by Martin Scorsese, the director of the magnificent Hitchcock/Truffaut Kent Jones makes a nuanced character study as he examines the dynamics of growing old in the 21st century. Retired widow Diane, who spends her time dealing with her petulant, heroin-addicted son and visiting her cousin who is slowly dying at a hospital, can’t help but question whether if she contributed to the suffering of the people she is taking care of. As her friends and loved ones start leaving this world one by one, it becomes inevitable for Diane to face her own mortality. Mary Kay Place gives a master class in acting as Diane, a character based on Jones’ own mother.
