Elliott Gould, Fred Melamed, Stephanie Roth Haberle, Judith Roberts,Mfoniso Udofia
Following his previous feature, The Caller (2008), director Richard Ledes again calls on the deadpan comedic skills of Elliot Gould to play the eponymous Fred - a man stubbornly refusing to accompany his Alzheimer’s suffering wife to her new care home. A comedy of errors akin to Woody Allen - if only for the casting of Fred Melamed and Stephanie Roth Haberle as Fred’s exasperated son and daughter. This is also a delightfully imaginative look at the nature of transitions - geographical, psychological, and spiritual.
