Lots of laughs heart and the tears come on big!

Florence Henderson delivers one of her most memorable performances in this story about a grandmother who dies and manipulates her way back to earth, for just a moment, in order to keep a promise to her granddaughter, and also to help her granddaughter deal with the issue of death. The wonderfully crafted screenplay was written by Ann Marcus (of TV's Mary Hartman fame). Marcus knows exactly when to take the twists and turns where comedy and drama meet. Opening with a memorable journey to a flashback of 1940s N.Y.C., the script is tight and clever with great dialog. At the helm, director Nat Christian navigates Marcus's vision beautifully. He focuses on what is pulling at us at the moment and moves us along, always keeping our appetites wet. And he gets excellent performances out of the actors. Florence Henderson is marvelous. Actress Allison Lange, who plays a younger Florence, lights up the screen whenever she's on. A delightful and beautiful actress, Yaani King is perfect as an aide in heaven. Stephanie Patton, a very gifted young actress, plays the granddaughter with the honesty of an older accomplished actor. David Paetkau and Kathryn Gordon are also superb. Great film!
