As Good As You
Directed by Heather de Michele • Drama • With Laura Heisler, Anna Fitzwater, Raoul Bhaneja, Bryan Dechart, Annie Potts • 2017 • 85 minutes
Jo (Laura Heisler) is having a bad year. She has major writer's block, a rather dire caffeine addiction and is deeply mourning the untimely death of her beautiful wife. To top it all off, her biological alarm clock is ringing off the wall. In an attempt to address the latter issue, JO asks her late-partner's brother JAMIE (Bryan Dechart) to be her sperm donor. Craziness ensues, in the form of a visit to the fertility clinic's psychologist (Annie Potts), and a love triangle with her two best friends (Raoul Bhaneja and Anna Fitzwater). AS GOOD AS YOU is a serious comedy about trying to grieve the right way, and maybe growing up a bit in the process.
