Angel's Perch (2013)

Available worldwide

When his grandmother Polly is found wandering outside one morning, Jack, a successful architect, must travel back to his tiny hometown in the mountains of West Virginia to deal with her worsening Alzheimer's. But what was intended to be a quick, under-the-radar trip becomes complicated when no local nursing home can take Polly.

Torn between the career opportunity of a lifetime, caring for his last living relative and running from his own painful memories, Jack’s carefully constructed life begins to unravel. As the town prepares to honor Polly’s life by crowning her the “Queen of Cass” at the local festival, Jack struggles to hide his secret from them all.

But when a childhood friend forces it out of him, Jack must choose between standing still or facing the pain of his past, so that he can finally move on with his life. Angel’s Perch examines the delicate relationship between past and present, memory and loss.

Sweet film.

I thought this was a really good film about looking at yourself and what's really going on for you even when you can't seem to (want to) talk about it..... slows you down a moment to reflect...and to remember the love that still exists even when the hurt may seem like that's more important at the moment when it's really not...
very enjoyable!

Wonderful story! Nicely done but it did drag a little. I had some trouble staying with it but am glad I did.

the misogynistic male bonding at the end.

Well written, well acted, and well produced. My heart is touched, my memories of love and loss allowed a few tears, and the ending was one of hope and honoring life and love. The very 'strange' thing about it. Today would have been my Mom's 100th birthday, and I awoke missing her so very much. This film brought her home to my heart and I know the day will bring more smiles than tears.
