A mother struggles to take control of her life in the face of advanced Parkinson's disease, while her son battles his sexual and emotional identity amongst the violence of Alberta's oil field work camps.
"Fabulous" was the word I heard again and again as I left the theatre after a screening. The movie is terrific! A wonderfully made documentary of a brilliantly talented entertainer, it shows us the highs and lows of a singular life! There is plenty of Sammy Davis, Jr., in the film, starting from when he was a precocious performer at age 3. The breadth of his talents is well covered and simply dazzles. An interesting array of well known and not so well known people comment on the star's highs and lows, their words well chosen and never boring. His life was bound up with the politics and social mores of the time, an aspect that made the film important as well as a joy to see. I was so mesmerized that I forgot to eat the excellent chocolates I'd bought.
