Dir. Doug Block US 2006

Filmmaker Doug Block had every reason to believe his parent's 54-year marriage was a good one. So he's stunned when, just a few months after his mother's unexpected death, his 83-year old father announces that he's moving to Florida to live with Kitty, his secretary from 40 years before. When Doug returns to his family home for one last visit before it's sold, he discovers 3 large boxes filled with his mother's diaries going back 35 years. What begins as an autobiographical story soon evolves into a broader meditation on the universal themes of love, marriage, fidelity and the mystery of family. Spanning 60 years and 3 generations, the film weaves together faded snapshots, 8mm home movies and two decades of verité footage. The result is a timeless tale of what can happen when our most fundamental assumptions about family are suddenly called into question. (90m)
