Despite Chalfant's typically stellar work as a flinty, dying matriarch of a highly dysfunctional Irish-Catholic family, Michael Patrick Kelly's clumsily executed, low-budget feature is an unfortunate misfire.
Kelly's first narrative feature registers low on the cinematic-oomph scale, the production's low budget sometimes all too evident. Its aim is true, though, and Kathleen Chalfant infuses the lead role with an elegant ferocity.
