Hanging Up – Filtered


When their crusty old dad gets a serious illness, three sisters with high-pressure lifestyles must deal with their veiled feelings towards one another while caring for the petulant parent.
Georgia (Diane Keaton), the eldest, is vying for a spot on the Power List as editor-in-chief of her self-titled woman’s magazine. Eve (Meg Ryan) is the daddy’s girl turned responsible middle sister. And Maddy (Lisa Kudrow), is a semi-successful soap actress. Somewhere between “hello,” “goodbye” and “you’re breaking up – I’ll call you back,” they cope with the joy, tears and conflicting emotions that plague their dysfunctional family.

Dove Review

Three sisters are responsible for their dying father. But two sisters (Keaton and Kudrow) are too busy with their jobs to help their sister ( Meg Ryan) take care of him. I thought this was a really good movie. I would recommend it but due the the thematic element of death, I would recommend it for ages twelve and up. The film shows how two of the sisters are too busy with their jobs to really think about their father but eventually they realize it. They try to start helping. It is funny in one part when Meg gets so frustrated with everything she blows up. It is a funny and sad movie. The film is definately approved.
