The Rest of Us

Rest of Us

When Cami Bowden's ex-husband Craig dies suddenly of a heart attack, the perfect life Cami has created begins to unravel. At Craig's funeral, Cami and Aster encounter Rachel, Craig's second, much younger wife, who he left Cami for, and Talulah, Craig's second child, who is pointedly avoiding the grieving process. Rachel, having spent much of her adult life as a stay-at-home wife, reveals to Cami that Craig has been hiding a multitude of debt and that their house will be repossessed--Rachel and Talulah will soon be left without a home or a penny to their names while they hope for Craig's life insurance policy to pay out. Moved by Rachel's plight, Cami reluctantly offers to let the pair temporarily live in her house. Together under one roof, the women process their grief and anger over his death and search for meaning and direction in their lives. All the while, old secrets and shifting allegiances threaten to bring the tenuous balance of the household crashing down around them.

 

Critical Notes

"But it's not a bad thing when a film leaves you wishing it were longer, and Chin-Yee gets excellent, heartfelt work from all four of her leads." - Norman Wilner, NOW Toronto
