Storyline

Ava and her mother Faye are bonded by many things...unconditional love, a passion for the arts, a belief that magic exists, and an insidious disease that will one day end both their lives. It's been three years since Ava moved back into her mother's house to care for Faye, and as Ava witnesses the slow downward spiral all she can do is keep her mother's spirits up while locking away the fears of her own future. Today is a day like any other until rare guests and unexpected events compel Faye to make a shocking announcement, sending Ava into a tailspin. Unable to deal with reality, Ava cries herself to sleep in her mother's arms and escapes to a dream world filled with old friends and long forgotten desires. Written by Marina Rice Bader

Two parental warnings
31 July 2017 | by Jackbv123See all my reviews

Regardless of any other issues, this movie lacks quality in both acting and story presentation.

Chloe Farnworth has to give a performance filled with various strong emotions and most of the time the performance does not ring true; it does not seem real.

Because of the dream sequence, some of the details of the plot are unnecessarily confusing. The dream sequence could have been fanciful and enjoyable, but it is mostly spent in various disagreements. The sequence includes some characters who correspond to real life, and some who are creations of Ava's imagination, for example Depression, Denial, and Acceptance.

There is a strong subplot regarding relations between semi-estranged sisters.

I have two parental warnings: 1) There is a scene over 5 minutes long of two women shown topless and they are kissing and being passionate with one another. They are explicitly revealed above the waist. One of the women is obviously pregnant in this scene. I am leaving out a lot of detail about this scene for decency's sake.

2) Much of the movie is about a disagreement between Ava and her mom about her mom ending her life. Her mom has Huntington's which is extremely debilitating and she is already suffering severe loss of function. Ava does a poor job presenting any reasoned case against it so the movie leaves us with a lopsided view of a controversial topic.
