Families aren’t always about love and laughters. Real families are also about hate, heartaches, and tears. And families not created equal. Some are actually much more unhappier than others.
An ultra rich widow on her dying bed in Sydney, surrounded by her personal staffs, an ex-cabaret dancer German maid, a young nun, and one particular mischievously inventive nurse. Now her two children, an aged, washed-out, England stage actor son and a divorced, but still retaining her French-royalty title, daughter, come aboard for the big final goodbye. Not exactly very difficult, but a very painful farewell it is.
My Rating: 7/10
