"The movie business is macabre. Grotesque.
It is a combination of a football game
and a brothel."
-- Federico Fellini

“A timeless lark: a rollicking, touching family yarn…Slimmer’s undying faith in these characters’ lovability gets under your skin, and the movie stays warm and endearing throughout. Like John Waters — she has a sly way of mixing pathos with outlandishness.   The simplistic underlying message is right out of an Eighties John Hughes flick.”  – The Village Voice


Candy injects the “fun” in her dysfunctional life. When your brother is found by a neighbor naked and drunk, you’re stuck with a caveman of a boyfriend, you have a dickhead boss, and the madness of everyday life competes with your mother’s need to appear “normal,” you have to peek between the cracks to find the warm rays of hope. But, maybe normalcy is just a construct for other people. And, maybe breaking out of the institution is more important than fitting in. After years of trying to save those she loves, it’s time for Candy to save herself.

“Breakfast Club meets Little Miss Sunshine…a brilliantly-crafted comedy that asks the question: Who wants to be normal anyway?” – Cinequest Film Festival
