Synopsis:
The funny, heart-warming and moving new film from director Lewis Gilbert. When Violet Heaney's three daughters return home for her funeral, each sister finds her own way of coping with her loss. For Teresa, the eldest, it's herbal tea, obsessive cleaning and hectoring her long-suffering husband, Frank. Catherine, the youngest, resorts to retail therapy, industrial quantities of marijuana and manic phone calls to her elusive boyfriend in Barcelona. Middle daughter Mary seeks consolation professional detachment and the arms of her lover, Mike. Like Mary, Mike's a doctor. Unlike Mary, he's married...
The sisters soon discover that their early memories have grown fuzzy over time and the past becomes fuzzier still as they attempt to cope with their mother's parting.

Did the director KNOW my family? - Before You Go review by JK

Spoiler Alert
27/12/2017

I thought this was brilliantly done; so true to my own life when my sisters and I experienced the death of our mother. All the cast, especially Julie Walters, were fantastic. You do these things - clean incessantly, drink stuff you've never even touched before, laughed hysterically at stuff - it is all so beautifully observed and understated.
