Kathy Bates has never played a more lovable "frump". Brilliant!
on January 26, 2017
Laugh out loud funny, what a hidden gen this movie is. Kathy Bates plays a middle aged woman whose son has flown the nest and her boring husband basically ignores her. Her days are filled with romantic thoughts and fantasies about an Elvis-like figure who she adores and worships. Imagine her shock and grief when he is suddenly killed! Deciding to step out of the box and embark on the adventure of a lifetime, she hops on a plane and has the plan to attend his funeral service. Once she arrives in the little English town, she visits his home and sees a gathering of young me. As the silliness continues, it unfolds that her beloved was a closeted gay man with a younger lover who has, over the years, grown very bitter with the older "frumps" that his lover has been crooning to. Through a series of events, these two unlikely characters form a bond and return to the states to hunt down his killer. A super fun comedy that was truly entertaining.
