The Parting Glass – In Depth Journey
Didn’t know what to expect from this highly personal expression of grief and family introspection but certainly got more than expected from a terrific cast. Everyone delivers career confirming performances amid thoughtful situations – the like of which many viewers may or will, at some stage experience in one form or other. Veteran Ed Asner proves he’s still remarkably good as the patriarchal father. Uniquely talented composer Nathan Barr underscores the personal drama – with a highly emotive music score capturing each nuance as we follow these searching souls – each wanting to take solace in any glimmer of hope they find, even if it’s based on supposition. A couple of well placed songs add emotional power without being obvious.
Popular English actor and recovered alcoholic Stephen Moyer, is here, first-time director/producer. Moyer also directs his multi-nominated wife Anna Paquin (Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee ’07) and works well with award-winning cinematographer Guy Godfrey (Maudie ’17). As independent features go this stands out for loving dedication to the human experience. Sensitive audiences will recognise the effort involved and follow these believable characters to the highly effective finale.
Star, Dennis O’Hare’s personal and honest script runs warm and pensive with just the right amount of well placed humour. It seems like a sequence may have ended up on the cutting room floor, leaving a minor under-explained situation involving a late introduced family member but this does not overly hurt this thoughtful family journey. Recommended for lovers of movies offering examinations of real-life interactions – this fine work is not overly well known but deserves to be.
Love, loss, isolation, family ties, and a road trip
This was slow going and well, not great even with the cast attached. Story follows three siblings, their dad and an ex-husband who travel across the country to collect the youngest sisters belongings after her death. Along the road trip they stop frequently for coffee and tea, bicker over car convoy position or who is riding with who, they cry, they laugh they have panic attacks as they share their memories and last moments of the family they have just lost. The viewer gets the occasional flashback to Annan Paquin the deceased sister.
This is raw at times, its interesting how everybody deals with grief differently. Some characters are really vague or underutilized (Melissa Leo) others stood out Ed Asner is powerful and Denis O’Hare is fantastic. I also liked an American speaking Rhys Ifans as the husband. Other family members included Paul Gross and Cynthia Nixon. Hummm Stephen Moyer directed.
