In Greg Swartz’s ANOTHER HARVEST MOON four elderly Americans transition to life in a nursing home. This sensitive drama, anchored and propelled by four astonishing performances by veteran actors Ernest Borgnine, Anne Meara, Doris Roberts, and Piper Laurie, explores uncharted territory while remaining movingly universal. These four individuals form another family unit offering support with occasional sparring as they discuss life, death, and everything in-between.
"Powerful, poignant, honest, uncompromising, and touching. Wonderful performances from a cast of first-rate veteran stars.”
-Peter Hammond, BOXOFFICE MAGAZINE
Following a debilitating stroke, Frank (Borgnine) reveals that he can no longer remember his wife’s face. Unable to recall the love of his life, Franck wonders if life if worth living at all without memory. Divided between the advice from Alice (Roberts), the optimist, and Ella (Meara), the cynic, Franck, his friends, and family deal with issues of faith, dignity, and our obligations to our loved ones. Poignant and nostalgic, ANOTHER HARVEST MOON soars with superb writing, directing, and performances.
