“Jayne (Parker Posey) and Laura (Demi Moore) are about to take on the first man they just might not be able to handle: their seventy something-year-old father Joe (Rip Torn). Dutiful daughters returning to the house they grew up in, Jayne and Laura are forced to take a closer look at their own not-so-perfect lives while dodging childhood memories. Laura suspects that Joe needs full-time care, but Jayne refuses to believe that their father’s condition is that serious.
Their adventures back home are not without magic, mischief and mayhem, and even a search for buried treasure in the backyard! In the end, any tears that Jayne and Laura might shed will be happy ones.”
The old man is maybe a bit crazy over the edge, but he’s still kicking and alive: he did manage to seduce that beautiful nurse after all!
The movie Happy Tears is directed by Mitchell Lichtenstein and starring Parker Posey, Demi Moore, Rip Torn, Ellen Barkin.
