What They Had stars Hilary Swank, Michael Shannon, Bythe Danner and Josh Lucas in a story about a woman who returns home and must confront her past after her Alzheimer’s-stricken mother wanders into a blizzard.
What They Had is written / directed by Elizabeth Chomko…
Considering the great cast, I’m quite sure this will be a good movie. The question for me is how badly I’ll want to see it bearing in mind the dark subject matter – and having already seen Still Alice (2014), a really good movie about dementia.
I probably will end up watching this as long as the mood strikes just right. It helps that Blythe Danner is a key character. I’ve always liked her ever since Meet The Parents (2000).
Taissa Farmiga, Aimee Garcia, Robert Forster, Jay Montepare and Anna Kabis also star.
In the new Joel David Moore directed comedy / drama, Youth In Oregon which stars Christina Applegate, Billy Crudup, Josh Lucas and Frank Langella, Crudup plays a man tasked with driving his father-in-law (Frank Langella) to Oregon to get legally euthanised…
Youth In Oregon will be the second movie I see after Last Cab To Darwin (2016) that involves a long drive to another town to be euthanised. I wonder how this one will turn out. My predictions are clear in my mind but wouldn’t a surprise be nice?
